This jam is very soft and spreadable. It can be used as a spread on toast or muffins or a cookie filling or a topping for ice cream, pancakes and cheesecakes. Less than half the sugar is required of the traditional cooked jams using pectin.

Make a delicious jam whenever you have the urge for that taste of summer. Select one fruit or a combination of fruit.
