BluStraBerry Jam

I made up this recipe since it is the end of strawberry season and the start of blueberry season... The name I came up with is a combo of the 2 and pretty awesome if you ask me!!


~ 7 cups sugar
~ 6 cups strawberries (4 cups mashed)
~ 2 cups blueberries (1 cup mashed)
~ 4 tablespoons lemon juice
~ 1 package powder pectin

**Makes 8~ 8oz jars**

~ Prepare 8 clean 8 oz jars

~ Measure sugar into bowl and set aside

~ Wash berries

~ Crush strawberries and add to large stainless steel pan

~ Crush Blueberries and add to strawberries in pan, Whisk together

~ Add lemon juice and pectin.. stir until ALL dissolved

~ Bring to a rolling boil then add sugar all at once

~ Return to a boil that cannot be stirred down

~ Boil hard for 1 minute

~ Remove from heat and skim off top foam (discard)

~ Fill prepared canning jars one at a time leaving 1/4 inch head space

~ Process for 10 minutes

~ Enjoy

***Caution: This jam is freaking ridiculously yummy and you might fall in love, proceed with caution!***
