Do you have fruit at home going bad? Lately, we should save our money and our food, and making this triple berry jam may be the best way.
Making Triple Berry Jam Was Never This Easy
There is no need to be scared; making this jam won’t take long hours and endless effort. Instead, you simply need the fruit, sugar, and citric acid.
How does this triple berry jam work?
First, pick out the strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. It’s better to choose the ones that are already mushy and about to turn bad.
Second, you choose your sugar. Regular granulated sugar is the best one because it is fine and will dissolve completely.
Now, you’re ready to add flavor. This part requires you to leave the berries mixed with sugar overnight, which gives them enough time to infuse the sugar.
Time for cooking!
Cooking the berries over medium heat and stirring frequently will make the jam set, but be careful with the foam that rises.
Bring on the sour!
This recipe calls for citric acid, but you can use lemon juice, tartaric acid, or white distilled vinegar for a similar flavor.
The acid should only be added once the berry mix is boiling. Add salt to taste if you want, and simmer.
