It's berry-picking season! Capture the flavor of summer all year long by turning your piles of berries into jams and jellies. There are several ways to make jam: You can stick to the traditional route and sterilize your jars and vacuum seal them. Or, you can keep your jam in your freezer and skip a few steps. Even faster, you can cook and thicken the berries into a quick jam that lasts in your refrigerator for three weeks. Review these recipes for everything from peach-rosemary jam to blueberry refrigerator jam for all the information you need to start jamming!
Quick tip: Sometimes your grocers or farmers' market have extra berries that may not be good for eating but are perfect for canning. These are often available at steep discounts.
