Mixed Berry Jam and How You Can Make Your Own Jam in 30 Minutes #giveaway

Jennifer here to share with you about a brand new Ball product that will literally make your jam and jelly making easier! We were provided product for review and one to give away. No other compensation was received.

I started making my own homemade jams and jellies a couple of years ago. I found out how easy it was to do, and because I am trying to provide better foods for my family, I knew this was something I really wanted to perfect. Here is my most recent recipe I made.

Now, normally when I make jam, I do it right on the stovetop in my big sauce pot, but I recently was introduced to the Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker. Since getting this appliance, my jam making sessions have been cut in half!

It usually takes about an hour to make jam on the stovetop, but with the automatic jam and jelly maker, I can create all different kinds of jellies and jams in under 30 minutes. I love this little contraption!

I am going to be experimenting with pepper jellies next week. I love this kind of jelly poured over a block of cream cheese with some reduced fat wheat crackers. It is my all time favorite snack.

  3. Marty says

    My great grandmother used to make Raspberry Jam when I was a kid. It’s my favorite spread, and I’d love to try to recreate it.

  4. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says

    Probably because of my (partly) Swedish heritage – but I LOVE Lingonberry Jam (preserves)!

    They are fabulous on (Swedish and other) Pancakes – but also on toast! (and with goodies like Swedish Meatballs too.)

  5. Amy Honious says

    my favorite jelly is grape (MY grapes). we grow 3 types of grapes in our backyard and the mix of them makes the most fabulous, tasty and beautiful grape jelly! this prize would certainly make that job easier :) Thanks!!!

    Spiced blueberry is my favorite. Add a little cinnamon and some other spices to the fruit for the most delicious jam!

      I have a mulberry tree out back. I didn’t know people actually ate them. I heard they were bitter. They make a big mess of my patio.

      • Marti Parks says

        When they are ripe (dark purple) they are really sweet and delicious. I have a tree out back too and yes the are very messy. Every time I pick them my hands turn purple.

  7. Anne says

    My favorite jam is raspberry, but since raspberries are expensive, I’m a lot more likely to make blueberry jam, which I also love.

  8. Heather Freeman says

    Do preserves count? If so, then: strawberry preserves. If not, then strawberry jam, then strawberry jelly. Strawberry strawberry strawberry!

  9. Jennifer I says

    My favorite jam is definitely blackberry! Winning this would be great! I’ve always wanted to make my own jams and jellies and this would give me some use for the oodles of my favorite Bell jars that are just sitting around!

  10. Kelli B says

    Wild blackberry is my favorite. I make it every summer. No matter how many I pick and how much I preserve, it is always long gone before the berries come back and I can make more….

  11. Samantha Bassett says

    Grape!! Store bought and homemade it’s gotta be grape! My Aunt Donna use to make the most AMAZING grape jelly!!! I used to love love LOVE IT!!! Hoping that she still has the recipe and can pass it on to me! =D
