Blueberry Blackberry Jam

This week I wound up with several packages of blueberries and blackberries. They were a bit too tart/bitter to eat fresh and already too soft to let ripen. So berry jam was made! Its the easiest thing and only took 30ish minutes to make.

This is perfect for toast, pbj’s or on top of ice cream! I also love this as a filling for pastries.

Yields30 Servings

 2 cups Blueberries, washed
 2 cups Blackberries, washed(raspberries work great with this)
 ½ cup turbinado sugar
 ¼ cup Fresh lemon juice

1

Bring all the ingredients to a simmer in a sauce pan, stirring frequently until reduced to a thick jam like consistency. This took about 25-30 minutes. Remember, once it cools it thickens up more. I typically start off with ½ cup sugar if the berries aren't naturally sweet and once its about the consistency I want I gradually add a little more until its just right. I prefer it to be naturally sweet but sometimes super tart berries need a lil help!
