Instructions:
  1. We used a food processor to crush the berries. Just a couple pulses of the food processor is plenty. You don’t want it to be totally smooth. Measure out 4 cups of crushed berries.
  2. Pour the berries in your pot and set your burner on high heat. Pour in the fruit pectin and stir constantly. You want the mixture to get to a rolling boil that you cannot stir down. Stir until it comes to that point. Then pour in the 4 cups of sugar all at once. Continue stirring until it comes back to a boil. Boil for one minute, then remove from heat- it now needs to be tested to see if it is done.
  3. Now for an old family secret! You see berries are not all alike. If you have a wet season, the berries have more water in them. Sometimes they have more natural pectin in them than other times. In other words, the cooking time can vary depending on the berry. A glass plate that has been sitting in the freezer will help you to check for proper consistency. Simply add a spoonful of the jam onto the frozen plate and put it back in the freezer for just a few moments. Then check the consistency. If it is the consistency of jam, it is done! If it is too thin, just put the pot back on the burner for another minute and try again.
