Add berries & lemon juice into sauce pan , bring to a boil . The lemon juice will bring out the juice in the berries
Add sugar, mix well , make sure ALL of the sugar is dissolved and bring to a boil. Boil without stirring for 15 minutes . Meanwhile place a glass plate in the freezer ( you'll need it later )
Once the 15 minutes are up , turn burner off , remove plate from freezer . Place a spoon full of jam on the plate , let cool , with your finger check the texture of the jam.
If it's not quiet ready continue to cook and recheck. Pour into airtight container or jars . If using jars,after filling , put jars into boiling water and let sit until the top pops .
After cooled , label with date Will last at least 12 months Store in a cool dark place until ready to use , refrigerate after opening And enjoy a summertime favorite all year :)
