Keepin' it simple this year for Easter Sunday!

With my insanely busy (but amazing) schedule with work, school (almost done with that thesis!) and dietetic internship (3.5 more months!), I have been making recipes ahead of time on the one day I sort of have time... Meal Prep Sunday. When I saw this month's Recipe Redux "Easter is April 1. Passover begins March 30.  Whether or not you are celebrating either holiday, show us your favorite family recipes for springtime celebrations." I knew I had to whip up something simple, sweet and distributed among the whole family. Why not make a big batch and gift home-made mixed berry jam this Easter?! All you need are 4 simple things:

  • Sugar

Ingredients:

  • 7 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 6 cups granulated sugar
  • 1.75 oz container fruit pectin

Directions:

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine mixed berries, sugar and pectin. Stir constantly and bring to a boil, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let sit for about 5 minutes. Pour into mason jars and let sit over night. Mixture will start to thicken. 

Serve on a biscuit and enjoy!
