Mixed Berry Jam

This Mixed Berry Jam is a thick, spreadable jam! It uses four berries and is the perfect balance of tart and sweet. This recipe can be made in a small batch or scaled into a large batch and it will be perfectly thick every time! 

Mixed Berry Jam

I love making jam. You could say that it’s my jam. 😂 (sorrynotsorry)

I love jam on toasts, in muffins, on scones, in between layers of cakes, in buttercream, on yogurt, in donuts, on ice cream. [This is by no means a comprehensive list…I just figured you were bored!😜]

Mixed Berry Jam

Basically I will eat jam in any way shape or form. 

Oh! I forgot jam bars!

Jammin’ with Mixed Berry Jam

  • While this mixed berry jam can easily, and quickly, be made in a small batch, it can also be scaled up into as large of a batch as you would like! The largest batch that I have made with it was 4.5kg or a little under 10 pounds! 
  • The reason it works in a large batch is because of the specific ratio of berries and the pectin. Berries have varying levels of natural pectin, so if you change my ratio, then you will either need more or less added pectin to achieve the same consistency. Especially if you are adjusting the amount of strawberries. Strawberries have a high moisture content and make a runny jam without pectin. In a small batch you might not notice the difference, but scale that up by a few kilos, and you’ll have yourself a sticky situation! 😂 [Last one, I promise!]
