This is a super fast and easy way to use up summer’s delicious fruits. This jam will stay good in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. If you make this to give away to others, make sure you label it with the date and that it needs to stay refrigerated since we’re not sealing the jars up. I love this because you can use whatever fruits are on sale and simply adjust the lemon and sugar, depending on which fruit you use. This tastes great on toast, bagels, waffles, pancakes, and even ice cream! You can also mix several fruits, like different berries to come up with some unique flavors.
Makes 1 half-pint jar (8 ounces) for approximately $3.00, depending on what fruits you choose and of course if you grow your own, it will be super cheap!
Depending on what fruits you use, some contain a higher water content so some fruits may take longer to jam up than others.
