Mixed Berry Jam in Bread Machine - CulinaryShades

Bread and jam have been a savior for me many a time while packing a snack for my kids. Mixed berry jam is their favorite, in fact, it is the only flavor they like.

Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries in equal quantity have been my mantra but they can be adjusted/omitted based on one's liking and taste.

Mixed berries jam can be made by coarsely blending the fruits with a hand blender and even by using whole fruits. Both turn out great in the bread machine.

The whole fruits one tastes great however kids may not prefer chunks of fruit in their jam 🙂

How to make mixed berries jam in bread machine?

Most of the bread machines nowadays have a "Jam" cycle and you can make fresh jam at home in small batches which last a few weeks.

It is absolutely hands-off and allows to use organic fruits and control the sugar quantity. All it requires is to put the fruits, sugar, butter and pectin in the container and start the "Jam" cycle.

The machine does the rest of the job! I use Sure Jell Premium Fruit Pectin while making jam as it helps set the jam.

Adding a little butter helps in getting a nice shiny glaze and avoids formation of small bubbles in the jam.

How to store jam

A perfect fresh homemade jam is ready upon completion of the cycle. Pour the jam in a clean, sanitized jar and refrigerate it once it cools down. 16 oz Ball Mason Jars work well for storing jam.

It can be refrigerated for 3-4 few months but it will not last that long :-). Fresh jam is a compliment to freshly baked bread and you will simply love this yummy mixed berry jam.

Hi! I made this and my jam has been in the fridge overnight but it is still runny. What should I do?

Hi Patty,

Did you use frozen berries or fresh ones? If using frozen berries, next time you may want to ensure to squeeze out any excess water else it can make the jam runny. For now, I can suggest you cook the jam once again on the stove and add about 1/2-3/4 tbsp of pectin and allow it to boil for 5 minutes, and then cool it down.

Hope this helps,

Regards Alpa

Hi can we freeze the jam in the freezer for a longer survival time.

Hi Pam,

Yes, you can freeze the jam. It is best to keep some space in the container for it to expand.

My bread maker is pretty old and doesn’t have a jam cycle, can I use the bake cycle?

Hi Terry

Jam cycle keeps mixing the jam ingredients every few seconds while heating it. However, the bake cycle will only heat it. So most likely it will not work.
