  • 6 Ball®️ smooth sided 8 oz jars


  • 4 cups crushed berries, mix and match your favorites such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and/or raspberries
  • tbsp Ball® RealFruit™ Classic Pectin
  • 3 cups sugar


  • Prepare the boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  • Combine berries in an 8-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in pectin. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, over high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Add the entire measure of sugar, stirring to dissolve. Return mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam, if necessary.
  • Ladle hot jam into hot jars, one at a time, leaving a ¼ inch headspace. Wipe rims. Center lids on jar and apply band, adjust to fingertip tight. Place the jar in a boiling water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.
  • Process jars for 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat, remove lid and let jars stand for 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Remove jars and cool for 12-24 hours. Check lids for seal, they should not flex when center is pressed.
