Quick Berry Jam

While Mommabear was here… she helped me make a quick berry jam – which was  a perfect gift for Christmas hampers… as well as being gobbled up with her 12 minute scones!!

This recipe is easy to make, requires very little ingredients and can be adapted for other fruit jams! A definite make again!
