Berry Good No Work Jam

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by hellokitty

A really easy recipe that I tweaked to suit my family's tastes...a really good tangy and not too sweet jam that goes great either hot or cold.

I followed this recipe exactly and this did not turn out as jam for me. I used blueberries and when the berries were mashed with a fork they did not blend together to form any type of jam. I think this would probably work much better by using strawberries. Made for Fall 2009 My 3 Chefs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Wash the berries and dry them.
  3. Cut off the green tops if you are using strawberries.
  4. Place all the berries into a bowl, and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Add the honey and the lemon juice, toss together so all the berries are covered.
  6. Place them on a sheet pan.
  7. Roast for 5 minutes if your berries are ripe and soft.
  8. If your berries are not quite so ripe, roast them for 5 minutes and then turn off the oven. Keep them in there for at least 15 more minutes to soften.
  9. When your berries are cooked and the honey is bubbling, take them out and mash them softly with a fork.
  10. Eat as is, or cool, whatever you like.
