I’ve started to think I need better names for my jams. I mean Razzleberry Jam sounds so much more fun than Raspberry-Blackberry Jam. Plus, it’s much easier to put on a label. So, with that in mind I present 2010’s Blue+Black Jam. I think I’ve mixed up the blueberries and blackberries before but I can’t remember when. I was talking with my buddy Melissa last week about the combo and it reminded me I should make some. I used a pint and a half of blueberries and about the same amount of blackberries, enough to make 4.5 cups of crushed fruit.
FRUIT: 1.5 pints each of blueberries and blackberries
SOURCE: blueberries from our CSA farm and the blackberries from a local farm
RECIPE: 4.5 cups crushed fruit, 5.5 cups sugar, 1 box pectin
YIELD: 5 half-pints, 1 pint, and about a quarter-pint in the fridge
