The freezer jam recipe off the back of a box of pectin.
Follow it to a T, and you will have perfect jam!
This is the box of pectin I use. Don't deviate from the instructions on the pamphlet inside the box one bit and your jam will set perfectly, and beautifully. True story. I have no secret jam recipe in my arsenal of recipes. I've tried lots of different versions of jam thinking that maybe "A Little Something" will make the best jam, but honestly the best jam is simple and straightforward. Fruit-Sugar-Pectin. Period! I spent an hour or so the other morning making a few batches of raspberry jam. With a raspberry patch like mine, I'm never in short supply of berries. When it comes to my favorite jam flavors, Raspberry and Blackberry. Not a combination of the two, but one or the other. I do make strawberry, and my family loves it, but I'm truly a raspberry or blackberry jam snob! I make a batch or two or peach every year, but it never makes it onto toast. It's sole purpose in life is to doctor up some BBQ sauce for my sister Hollie's famous Baby Back Ribs. It turns an ordinary bottle of BBQ sauce into the most delictable sauce on the planet!
Make some jam this summer! I love freezer jam because it's REALLY easy, and it tastes like fruit. The color stays beautiful, and really, it just tastes like the fresh fruit:) I love it! If you're headed to Cache Valley there's a great raspberry stand on Hwy 89 as you enter the valley. Week's Berries of Paradise. They're from my little town, and they have raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and currants. Fresh picked! Pick up a flat and make some jam. Of course that's after you've had you fill of fresh berries with milk and sugar, or may I suggest a smidgen of cream. There's nothing better. You should also make a batch of this bread too. If not, I know a great little bakery that bakes the best bread on the planet, fresh every day!
