Choose any combination of berries to equal four cups in this recipe. But, trust me, more varieties make it better!
4 c. blackberries, raspberries or mulberries -- caps removed
4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. lemon peel
3 oz. fruit pectin
2 T. lemon juice
Crush the berries and carefully measure out 2 cups of the mixture. Combine the 2 cups of crushed berries, sugar and lemon peel in a bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes to macerate.
Mix the pectin and the lemon juice. Add to the berry mixture and stir constantly for 3 minutes.
Carefully pour the mixture into jelly jars and cover with lids. Allow to stand at room temperature for 2 hours or until the jam is set. Freeze until ready to use.
