Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Start the grill and make a deliciously seasoned chicken recipe tonight!

You can use three cups of any berries, but the combination of blueberries, blackberries and strawberries makes a unique jam. Makes 7 cups.

• 1 pint blueberries
• 1 pint blackberries
• 1 pint strawberries
• 5 cups sugar (no substitutes, do not decrease)
• 1 box pectin
• 1 cup water

1. Puree berries in a blender or food processor, leaving a few chunks for texture. Strain through cheesecloth to remove seeds, if desired.

2. Measure 3 cups of the blended berries and combine in a large bowl with the sugar. Mix well and let sit 10 to 15 minutes.

3. In a saucepan, bring pectin and water to a boil for 1 minute, stirring continuously.

4. Pour pectin water into berry mix and stir until sugar dissolves—2 to 5 minutes.

5. Pour into clean jelly jars that hold no more than 1 cup, leaving half an inch of space at top; cover.

6. Allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours, then freeze for storage or keep in the refrigerator.
