I always prefer to gift something homemade as a simple way to say a heartfelt thank you. This jam is the perfect way to do that, and its super simple too, even if you’ve never made jam before. Especially if you’ve never made jam before.
You can use either fresh berries, which this time of year are not usually very fresh or affordable, or you can use frozen. Any mixed frozen berry assortment will work, just thaw them completely first and use about 5 cups total.
Once it’s finished cooking, you can either mash it with a potato masher or you can puree it in a blender, depending on how smooth you like your jam.
I’m gifting mine with a batch of Petite Vanilla Bean Scones without the glaze on them. If you warm it back up, it also makes the perfect sauce to drizzle over your ice cream sundae as well. Just saying…
Today, I’m visiting Rachel over at My Naturally Frugal Family. Please head over there for the recipe and to say hello!
Until next time, Happy New Year!!
