Posts Tagged ‘no-pectin’

When it comes to making jams and jellies I make a LOT!  We have a big family, I bake all of our own bread and that is a combination for eating a lot of jam…

Each year I do wild blackberry, white grape, apricot, and when I can get organic nectarines or plums I make no-pectin jam with them!


6 Cups chopped nectarines or Plums(I have found that this works best with fruit chopped by hand…in a food processor makes for a softer set)

3 Cups sugar

4 TBSP Lemon Juice

Combine ingredients and bring to a slow boil for 30 minutes stirring very frequently (I just stand and stir while reading a book)

Remove from heat…at this point you can add any spices you want, cinnamon, ginger, etc.  I like ours plain.

Ladle into sterilized Jelly Jars.

Put on hot lids and rings

Tighten (but no overly tight)

Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes

This is super easy, very delicious, and a great way to preserve your soft fruit bounty for the winter.
