Thimbleberry Jam

Making your own thimbleberry jam is a cinch because the berries contain a natural pectin—no need to add pectin or Sure-Jell.


2 cups freshly picked thimbleberries 2 cups sugar


Do not wash the thimbleberries—pick them over to remove debris and insects. Mix the sugar and berries, then bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars and seal at once.
