Recipe: Mixed Berry Jam

Thanks to Ball Canning for providing this recipe and images.

Did you know that making your own jam is super easy? You can even mix and match your favorite berries such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries to create a quick and delightful jam using Ball® RealFruit Classic Pectin. Whether the fruit comes from your garden or you stocked up on berries from the store, this recipe is fantastic for any combination of berries! Let me share one of my favorite recipes because it is delicious. Plus, let me emphasize that it is easy to make!

Recipe: Mixed Berry Jam


  • 4 cups crushed berries, mix and match your favorites such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and/or raspberries
  • 4 ½ tbsp Ball® RealFruit Classic Pectin
  • 3 cups sugar


  • Makes about 6 (8 oz) half-pint jars


  1. Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  2. Combine berries in an 8-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in pectin. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, over high heat, stirring constantly.
  3. Add entire measure of sugar, stirring to dissolve. Return mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam, if necessary.
  4. Ladle hot jam into a hot jar leaving a ¼ inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rim. Center lid on jar and apply band, adjust to fingertip tight. Place jar in boiling water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.
  5. Process jars 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat, remove lid, let jars stand 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool 12-24 hours. Check lids for seal, they should not flex when center is pressed.
