Refrigerator Jam

Recipe by invictus

Found this little gem in an old Woman's Day magazine I had laying around the house. You choose the fruit; strawberries, peaches, blueberries, plums, or whatever other combination you can come up with. 4 pounds of fruit makes about seven half-pints. This isn't exactly a speedy process and requires a lot of stirring so grab a good cookbook to read!

A wonderful easy jam. I used frozen blueberries and reduced the recipe to 8 ounces berries and 1/2 cup sugar because I didn't want any left to can. The only thing I did have to do extra was to add about 1 Tble spoon water to get the cooking started. Great jam for my tea party!
