“My son loves to help make and devour this jam in little sandwiches. I like that since I made it, I know what is in it. I got it from a Sesame Street Silly Snacks cook book, which was designed for cooking with your kids.”
1 1/2 cups jam

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir the frozen berries and sugar in a 2-quart measuring cup or other microwave-safe dish.
  2. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir and cut the large berries into smaller pieces.
  4. Add the lemon juice and stir.
  5. Return the dish to the microwave and cook for ten minutes, stirring after 5 minutes.
  6. Watch the mixture and stir again, if needed, to prevent the jam from boiling over.
  7. Test the thickness of the jam by putting a spoonful on a small saucer and placing it into the freezer for a minute. This is about how thick your jam will be when it is cooled.
  8. If you want thicker jam, microwave for 2 to 4 more minutes, stirring as needed.
  9. Allow the jam to cool. Pour it into storage containers. Jam will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, and in the freezer for 3 months.
