Old Fashioned Raspberry Blueberry Jam

raspberry blueberry jamThe backyard raspberry crop is finally starting to dwindle, but not before I got in another batch of jam. This time I combined the raspberries with organic blueberries from the farmer’s market. I made this same jam recipe last summer and it was a hit, with all 7 jars disappearing before the New Year.

The rest of this post has been moved to our new site, Seed to Pantry, where you will find lots more info about growing, canning, and preserving.

    Raspberry-Peach jam is great. If I have too many raspberries, I will freeze them and then use them in late summer to make jam with peaches. This is the best jam I have ever made. Also, a close second is strawberry, raspberry, blueberry jam.

    • Suzanne, I don’t think I have ever made raspberry-peach jam although last year I did make raspberry peach syrup (yum). I also make raspberry-apricot sometimes, and it’s a family tradition to make chocolate raspberry ice cream when the raspberries are overflowing. But raspberry-peach will be on my schedule this year – and the multi-berry sounds good too! Thanks for sharing your canning ideas.

  3. […] I made jam! Seven, half-pints of blueberry-raspberry jam, and then 7 half-pints of wildberry jam (a combination of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, […]

  4. Suzanne, use some honey in stead of sugar. For example delete two portions of sugar and add one and a half portions of honey. Just made of raspberry jam w/ two cups sugar and one and a half honey (from our hives) plus six crushed cups of raspberries and juice of one lemon. Nice result.

    • John, that’s a great idea. I make plum preserves and peach butter with honey, but don’t think I have ever used it with a berry spread. I’m a little bit jealous that you “grow” your own honey! Beekeeping is one of those things on my list, but haven’t gotten to it yet.
