  • 2 1/2 lb.

    fresh raspberries, blackberries, or peaches (pitted and cut into 1/2-inch pieces)

STORAGE SMARTS We skipped the water bath (which sanitizes jars) in favor of this shortcut method to save time — but that means you cannot store the jars in your pantry. Jams will last in the fridge for up to one week or in the freezer for a year.
