Marjorie’s 1-2-3 Partridgeberry Jam
- By: Marjorie Taylor
Years ago I found it so difficult to make (partridgeberry jam) that I kept trying and testing different methods. Then I started to measure. Now, I go by the 1-2-3 recipe and I really think it's a first-rate jam.
1 cup (250 mL) water
2 cups (500 mL) sugar
3 cups (750 mL) partridgeberries
Combine all ingredients in a preserving kettle or Dutch oven, and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook at a rolling boil, stirring almost constantly, for 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from heat, pour into hot sterilized jars, and seal. Store in a cool place. Makes 4 (8-ounce/250 mL) jars.
Note: Marjorie says she has never had a problem with the jam setting, but if this ever occurs, she'll just use it as a sauce over ice cream.
