Mixed Berry Jam with a hint of herb! It's sweet and busting with flavors!
Ingredients
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
Instructions
  1. Chop the strawberries in halves or quarters.
  2. Place the berries in a deep sauce pan and lightly mash the berries using a masher.
  3. Pour the citrus juice, honey and chopped rosemary.
  4. Cook in medium heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally until it thickens.
  5. While it’s cooking, start preparing the jar for preserving.
  6. Clean the jar, fill it with boiling water and keep it aside for a while. After a while, throw the water and dry the jar completely.
  7. Pour some more boiling water in a pan and drop the flat lid. Let it stay there unless you are ready to use the flat lid. The idea is to keep the flat lid warm until you ready to seal the jar.
  8. Once the jam thickens, fill it in the clean jar and wipe the rim of the jar clean with a damp tissue paper.
  9. Pat dry the flat lid and place it on top of the jar.
  10. Screw the dome lid ring tightly onto the filled jar.
  11. Turn the jar upside down. This helps the heat from the jam to contact with the lid and create a vacuum.
  12. Allow the jam to cool and then, store it in a cool dark place.
  13. It’s very important to refrigerate the jam after the jar has been opened.
Notes
I used honey which can be replaced by white sugar. Also, you may have to add more sugar or honey depending on the sweetness of the fruits. Rosemary is optional and can also be replaced by fresh thyme.
