Easy Mixed-Berry Jam (Gluten-Free)

I call this an “easy” jam, because I bypass the traditional canning process. Since I started dabbling with different fruit combinations, the jams I make are never in my kitchen long enough to need sealing.

This is a great recipe to play around with. I’ve had a lot of fun adding spices, even some port or wine to compliment the flavors of the fruit. Always a thoughtful gift or kitchen staple, find a canning method that works for you if you wish to preserve your jam for long periods of time.

Ingredients:
3 6-ounce containers fresh raspberries
3 6-ounce containers fresh blackberries
1 ½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
Clean jars washed in hot water

Directions:
Place a small saucer in the freezer for testing.

Combine with raspberries and blackberries in a large bowl. Mix in sugar, lemon juice and zest. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and bring fruit mixture to a boil. Mash berries until it becomes a thick puree. Reduce heat to medium and bring to a gentle boil. Stir frequently as jam begins to thicken. Cook for 20-25 minutes.

Remove from heat to test jam. Drop a spoonful on the chilled saucer and place in the freezer for 1 minute. Gently push the edge of the jam with your finger. If it has gelled, the surface will wrinkle slightly. Cook for 3-5 minutes longer if jam is still too runny. Repeat test.

Ladle jam into jars and let cool. Will last for 6-8 weeks in the refrigerator.

This one looks like a good one. I will have to file this recipe away until berry season comes along.

It took me 20 years or more Barry so I wouldn't claim any great insight on this I had a 'eureka' moment, up until then I was walking around with multiple symptoms and not connecting any dots whatsoever. It is very, very difficult to diagnose and that's something that's reflected in so many of the experiences detailed here. A food diary may help in your case. It helped me to connect the gaps between eating and onset. It could help you to track any gluten sources should you go gluten free. It is possible for your reactions to change over time. As to whether its celiac, that's something you could explore with your doctor, stay on gluten if you choose to go that way. best of luck! Matt

I took Zoloft once. Loved it until it triggered microscopic colitis (colonoscopy diagnosed it). Lexapro did the same. However, I have a family member who is fiagnosed celiac and tolerates Celexa well.

Thanks for the update and welcome to the club you never wanted to join! ?

Jmg, I am glad you were able to come to the realisation that the culprit was in fact gluten. For me its not so simple. IBS runs in the family, as do several food intolerances. Its just in the last while that I can finally reach the conclusion that for me its gluten. The fact that it is a delayed effect-several hours after, made it harder. Friday I had some KFC, felt great. Saturday evening felt sleepy, Sunday felt awful and my belly was huge. I think I have gone from mildly sensitive to full blown celiac over the course of five years-if that possible. Thanks for all your help.

I thought I'd take a moment to provide an update, given how much lurking I've done on these forums the last year. It took a long time, but I've since had another gastroenterologist visit, many months of eating tons of bread, and an endoscopy where they took several biopsies. I have to say, the endoscopy was a super quick and efficient experience. During the procedure they let me know that it looked somewhat suspicious, causing them to take many biopsies, and then did comprehensive blood work. About a month later, I received a call telling me that the TTG came back positive a second time, and that the biopsies were a mix of negative (normal) results and some that were positive (showing blunting of the villi). As a result, I've been given a celiac diagnosis. It's been about a month now that I've been eating gluten free. Not sure if I'm really feeling all that different yet. It's a bit twisted to say, but in some way I was hoping for this diagnosis ? thinking how nice it would be to have an explanation, a plan of action, and feeling better. It's certainly no small change to be totally gluten free, but I'm hopeful.
