Homemade Mixed Berry Jam

Berry, berry quite contrary, how does your garden grow? It wouldn’t be summer without a heaping of berries, which is why we love this blueberry, strawberry and blackberry combination from Suburban Simplicity’s Erin. “This Homemade Mixed Berry Jam recipe is so delicious you’ll want to put it on everything from pancakes and toast to waffles and ice cream. Or eat it right from the jar!”

We love combining our favorite fruits to make fun and tasty new pairings, which is why we included this Fig and Pear Jam in The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving, published by Oxmoor House (2016).

Nectarine and Blueberry Jam

For us, one of the most enjoyable parts of cooking, besides the eating, is making minor tweaks to our favorite recipes to create new and exciting variations. That’s why we love Noelle from AZ Plant Lady’s Nectarine and Blueberry Jam, which is a yummy variation on the Nectarine and Sour Cherry Jam recipe from The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving. We promise that this winning combination will be the perfect summertime partner for your morning biscuit or toast.
