Mixed Berry & Apple Jam
Ingredients
  • 3 pints organic strawberries, rinsed, hulled and halved
  • 1/2 cup organic blueberries, rinsed
  • 1/2 organic granny smith apple, small diced
  • 2 tbs Cointreau
  • 2 cups fine sugar
Instructions
  1. In medium-large size pot, combine the strawberries with the sugar and Cointreau and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir often to prevent burning.

  2. Add the apple and blueberries and keep the mixture at a boil, stirring often for about 30 minutes or until a candy thermometer reaches 220 degrees. 

  3. Using an immersion blender, gently blend the jam to give it an even texture. Skim any foam for the top and discard. 

  4. Transfer it to a container of your choice and store in the fridge for about 3 weeks. I also jar it in small batches and process the jars in boiling water using self sealing lids. This is an optional step but preserves the jam for much longer.  I only recommend doing this if you understand canning.
