Directions:
Dissolve sugar in water. Add berries. Boil 15 minutes. Pour into a large flat pan. Grandma always used her roasting pan. Shake the pan gently back and forth until jam is cool.

Personal Notes:
This is a supper yummy jam and you must save at least one jar for Christmas dinner. I recall trying to find innovative ways to shake grandma's jam without making my arms so tired, without success I might add.
