Quick Jam

Decided I needed some fresh jam the other day to go with some fresh baked bread.  So I quick attempted a batch.  Had to tweak it a bit, but it worked pretty well after all was said and done.

Used about 2 cups of frozen mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
3 packets of gelatin
1/4-1/3 cup of sugar
little extra water

Brought the frozen mixed berries to a boil and disolved the gelatin in it.  Stirred in the sugar. Poured it into a pint jar and topped it with a plastic cap.  Refrigerate until set.

It was a bit too thick, but I didn't really measure anything much, so I reheated it in the microwave (just for 15 seconds until soft) and put in a bit more water, stirred and it was perfect.  Not too sweet with lots of nice pieces of fruit.

This jam was great with the fresh English Muffins and the home made soynut butter.
