I’ve learned that you can do a lot with some berries, citrus, and sweetener. You can go the fruit roll-up route and make a homemade fruit leather. Or start with frozen berries and go the smoothie route. Or you can make jam! We’ve made berry jam using the magical thickening powers of chia seeds, but today we’re simplifying it even more. Naturally occurring pectin in the fruit and citrus zest is going to give us a perfectly thick, deliciously easy no pectin jam (in 3 berry tasty flavors!)

And the real beauty of this recipe? You can use frozen fruit! That’s right, homemade jam year round. You’ll essentially just stir everything together and set on the stove to cook down. Mash it up a bit to let the juices cook, then remove from the heat when your jam is thick and delicious (about 20 to 30 minutes).
