Berry-Berry-Cherry Freezer Jam
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups stemmed strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup pitted sweet cherries
1 package Ball 100% Natural Fruit Jell No
Sugar Needed Pectin
1 cup water

To prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand can-or-freeze jars and caps for
freezer storage, wash, rinse and dry.

Crush berries and cherries. Gradually stir pectin into water using a
whisk or fork to prevent lumping. Stir to dissolve pectin. Bring mixture
to a boil. Boil until pectin thickens, about 1 minute, stirring
constantly. Gradually stir pectin mixture into fruit; continue stirring
for 2 minutes.

Ladle jam into can-or-freeze jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe jar
rim clean. Adjust caps. Refrigerate. Let stand in refrigerator until
set, up to 24 hours. Label and freeze.

This recipe yields about 6 half-pints.
