Hot August Jam

Hot August Jam is the perfect symphony of summer produce. Peaches, blackberries, and blueberries, oh my!

Hot August Jam is just that, it’s hot, it’s august and it’s jam season. I love this combination of flavors. I picked up all three of these at my local farmers market. It’s definitely the season for peaches and they are so juicy and delicious right now. Local blueberries and blackberries are also in peak season.

This is the perfect gift to give out to friends, neighbors, and family. I love giving jam out as gifts. Edible gifts are always the best.

I use the water bath method when canning and it works every time for me. I have a couple tricks and tools that I use for success. When canning it’s important everything you’re using is clean, sterile and always use new lids. I let my dishwasher do the work and place all my mason jars, lids and tools on the top rack and use the sanitize setting. If you don’t have this setting on your dishwasher, then just do a basic wash. I have all the canning gadgets and tools, this Granite Ware Canning Set is everything you need for canning.

Serve this jam on your morning toast, pancakes or on top of brie.
