Summer is the perfect time for berry-picking and indulging in fresh fruit. I love eating ripe blueberries right off of the bush as I pick them to bring home. One of my favorite things to do at the end of the season is capture the essence of each berry by making jam. Jam lets you preserve the taste of fruit so you can enjoy it all year long! When January rolls around, you can still experience the delicious taste of a strawberry or blueberry. The best part about making your own jam is that it costs next to nothing.
At AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes.com, we have plenty of easy jam recipes that you can make in your trusty slow cooker. These recipes couldn’t be simpler, especially since most of them require only five ingredients or less. Check out some of our favorite slow cooker jams, as well as some slow cooker butters.
