You guys…I think I’m officially adding ’New Canner’ to my resume because I’m hooked on canning!
My mom and I are always looking for fun activities to do together, so when Ball reached out to me to give small batch canning a try I thought it would be perfect for Summer! My mom and I spent the day trying two different recipes and after seeing how easy the whole process is, I can’t wait to do it again (we’re thinking Peach Butter next!)
Today I’m sharing how to make Mixed Berry Jam with you! And let me tell you, the hardest part of the entire canning process was not sneaking a taste while we were cooking! The berries smelled SO good while they were cooking I wish there was a way I could’ve shared the smell along with the photos!
Are you ready to for canning to become your new hobby? Here are the Ball tools you need:
- Ball® Canning Utensil Kit
- Ball® 8oz. Glass Jars
- Ball® Jar Collection Elite Waterbath Canner with Rack and Glass Lid
The best part is that once you have all of these tools made by Ball®, you’re set for a Summer (and year) filled with canning! I also highly suggest picking up the “Ball® Canning Back to Basics” Book (that’s where I found the Peach Butter recipe) which is filled with all types of fun recipes to try!
Get the Step-by-Step Recipe for this Mixed Berry Jam right here! We made ours with strawberries and blueberries, but you can use any variation of berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries) to make this jam.
Have I convinced you to start canning yet? Head over to my Instagram to check out a few videos of our Summer canning adventure on my stories. And make sure to check back next month to find out how my Roasted Garlic Roma Tomato Sauce came out!
