Have a mulberry tree growing in your yard, or know where you can find one? Go gather some mulberries while they’re in season, and use them to make this delicious mulberry lavender freezer jam. There’s absolutely no cooking or canning involved, so you won’t even heat up your kitchen.

I love freezer jam recipes, like this one, because they’re easy to make, and they preserve all the nutrients in the fruit, which in the case of mulberries, includes Vitamin C, iron and antioxidants.

Lavender Sugar

This recipe is a slight adaptation of the recipe that’s printed on the back of a package of Ball or Mrs. Wages freezer pectin. Instead of sweetening the jam with granulated sugar, I decided to use my homemade lavender sugar. Lavender pairs beautifully with mulberry, and makes this jam feel fancy.

It only takes a few minutes to whip up a batch of lavender sugar, so it’s well worth the time it’ll take you to make some.

If lavender isn’t your thing, try sweetening the jam with my homemade vanilla sugar, or use straight granulated sugar, instead. You’re going to love the flavor of this mulberry freezer jam, whichever way you decide to go.

Mulberry Lavender Freezer Jam Recipe

This recipe makes approximately 3 pints, or 6 half-pints of jam. Be sure to store your jam in freezer jars, or another freezer-safe container. Regular mason jars may break, if you put them in the freezer.

Ingredients:

What You Do:

Colander of Mulberries

Wash the mulberries, and remove their stems.

Washed and Stemmed Mulberries

You can pinch them off with your fingers, but I recommend snipping them off with a small pair of scissors or nail clippers, so your fingers don’t get sore. This goes much faster with a helper.

Crushed Mulberries

Use a potato masher to crush the mulberries to your preferred consistency.

Stir Lavender Sugar and Freezer Pectin Together

In a separate bowl, combine the lavender sugar and pectin. Stir, until well mixed.

Stir Pectin, Sugar and Mulberries Together

Add the lavender sugar-pectin mixture to the crushed mulberries, and stir continually for 3 minutes.

Ladle your finished jam into freezer jars (or another freezer-safe container), stopping at the headspace line.

Screw on the lids, and label the jars. Then, allow the jam to thicken for 30 minutes, before freezing. Store your mulberry lavender freezer jam in the freezer for up to 1 year.
