Right now we’re in the midst of a bounty of summer fruits. Sadly, it won’t last forever. Here are nine sweet and tart jams to make now.
1. Blue-Barb Jam
Instead of the traditional strawberries, fresh blueberries are paired with rhubarb in this incredibly simple and delicious sweet-tart jam.
2. Plum Jam
This sweet jam calls for small plums, like Italian prune plums.
3. No-Cook Strawberry Jam
Made with instant pectin, this gingery strawberry jam is amazingly fresh-tasting.
4. Peach Jam
This super-simple jam will stay fresh for three months.
5. Triple Ginger Nectarine Jam
Three types of ginger (dried, candied and fresh) give this jam depth.
6. Mixed-Berry Jam
This berry-packed jam uses blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.
7. Mango Jam
This simple mango sauce is made by cooking pureed mango with sugar and just a touch of lemon juice.
8. Fig Jam
Light and floral figs are fantastic in a jam.
9. Apricot Jam
This delicious jam is surprisingly tart.
