MERRY BERRY CHERRY JAM - A Warm and sweet breakfast for a cold Christmas morning!

This recipe was prepared by chance. No planned purchasing involved and no big story.
I was scanning through my glass jar stock and decided to sterilize a few for pickling and for storing Chaat chutneys. That is when I realized that I had some fresh Cherries and Blueberries - Tada! I made this in an impulse. My family and me loved the taste of sweet cherries and berries. 

I consciously try to keep sugar quantity on the lower side in all jam recipes. This is to highlight and to keep fructose pronounced than glucose. Therefore, fruits are natural sources of sugar and its best to make use of it. I have already posted a low sugar version of Pineapple jam.

Try this out and let me know whats your take on this recipe.

  • Wash and pit the Cherries. Wash the blueberries and apple. Core, peel and chop the apple.
  • Add all the fruits to a saucepan and squeeze the lemon juice. Cook on low medium flame until the fruits burst and soften to let the juices out.
  • Add sugar and continue to cook until it reaches setting point. Check out this link to know how to check jam setting point.


  1. That's a lovely idea of keeping sugar content low

  2. Looks so yummy Sowmya!It is so good when we can keep the sugar low and tast ethe fruit itself, right?

  3. I like the addition of the apple... thank you for sharing this tip... the jam looks so good...

  4. Thanks. I had no idea how much sugar to add. Your recipe is in gms except the sugar which is confusing. I did half the weight of sugar to the weight of fruit and it tastes very sweet. I’ll test it tomorrow, but the lick the spoon test before washing up was nice. Maybe you could add gms for the sugar.
