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.

The only symptom I know of that is celiac for certain is dh, which must be diagnosed by a dermatologist.

I have both eoe and celiac and now that I have been gluten free for 18 months, my anemia is gone. It is good to get off the iron supliments because mine may have been the cause of my ulcers. It feels good to recover and heal! I may work my way down to fewer supliments and lots of feel great da...

Your daughter does not have a strong positive. I suspect that the GI might do as RMJ suggested which would be to load her up on gluten for six months and retest. On the other hand, with a diagnosed sibling and a very mild positive, your GI might recommend the endoscopy or run the test again to ...

I was diagnosed with celiac last year on an endoscopy looking for the cause of my anemia. At the time, my GI doc tested m for EoE and it was negative. Fast forward 11 months, I developed sudden heart burn, dysphagia out of the blue. My doc thinks it's EoE. Biopsy was last week and I am still wait...

No, the control test is to verify that she will react to that particular type of test. If she didn't, then certain of the bloods would not be applicable to her. They would be false negatives. As far as tests being weak positives, that's like being a little pregnant. A positive is a positive....
