Single Jar of Fruit Jam

🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
1 8-oz jar 20 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🍓 2 cup fruit
  • 🍬 0.75 cup sugar
  • 🍋 1 Tbsp lemon juice

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan
  • 1 wooden spoon

📝 Instructions


This jam calls for just two cups of chopped fruit. This is about one pint of berries, four to six peaches or plums, or eight small apricots.

Step 1

Wash and cut the fruit. Wash and hull the fruit as needed. Cut large strawberries into quarters and peaches into bite-sized pieces.

Step 2

Combine the fruit with sugar and mash. Combine the fruit with the sugar and lemon juice in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Gently mash with a wooden spoon until the fruit is juicy and most of the sugar is dissolved.

Step 3

Cook until jammy. Cook over a medium heat, continuing to mashing down on the fruit with a wooden spoon. Bring to a rolling boil and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the jam is thick and darkened in color, about 20 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer the jam to an 8-oz jar and refrigerate. Carefully spoon into a very clean (8-ounce) jar and let cool to room temperature. Seal the jar and refrigerate.
