Mixed Berry Jam

2 cups washed and crushed raspberries
2 cups washed and crushed blackberries
2 cups washed and crushed blueberries
4 cups sugar
1 packet of pectin
¼ cup lemon juice

Extra: 4 jelly jars with lids and bands, sturdy jar- lifting tongs, funnel.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and boil the jars and lids for about 10 minutes. It is important that you sterilize the jars and lids before you make your jam.
Use the tongs to remove the pieces from the pot, being careful not to burn yourself, and place them face down on clean paper towels.
Pour the crushed berries into a large pot. Pour in the lemon juice.
Mix the pectin with a few tablespoons of the sugar, and then stir it into the pot with the berries. Bring the contents of the pot to a boil.
Simmer the fruit and cook the juices down a little. Pour in the sugar and bring the contents of the pot to a boil again until the sugar dissolves and the jam reaches the right consistency. One way of testing the consistency is to stick a spoon into a bowl of ice water. Dry it off and stick it in the pot of boiling jam. Lift it out, and see how the fruit cools once it is on the spoon.

Pour the jam into the jars using a funnel, cleaning off any jam that falls around the rim with a clean paper towel. Place the lids on top of the jars and secure them with the bands. Invert the jar on the paper towel and leave for a few hours, to create a vacuum.
Label the jam with the date and keep in a cool, dry place. Use this winter.
