Crush berries one layer at a time using a potato masher. Measure required quantity of crushed berries and remaining ingredients for your recipe; set aside.

  5. THE APPLIANCE will continue to automatically stir your ingredients while it cooks. Stay within earshot of the Jam & Jelly Maker, the appliance will beep again at the end of the process signaling jam cooking is complete. Press cancel, unplug the appliance and immediately remove Glass Lid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackberry jam made with Jam Maker I made a batch of blackberry jam following the low sugar recipe and it was wonderful. The jam maker makes it so easy. The flavor was perfect and I can't make it as fast as my husband eats it. Next is Raspberry jam in my jam maker. I just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jams and Jellys made easy! My husband loves Jam and since we have plenty of fresh fruit, especially Blackberries, I decided to try the Jam and Jelly Maker. Couldn't be happier with the ease of using it; as opposed to the old method of messy, standing and cooking and stirring (not to mention getting so hot in the South Carolina kitchen). I've made several types of jam as well as some excellent Hot Pepper Jelly and am looking forward to trying new things this year.
