Raspberry Blueberry Jam

This jam is amazing. It reminds me of my favorite jar jam that I ate growing up. That stuff is addicting. But it has a bit too much sugar in it for my taste.

Guess what I did? I bought a new car. Well, it’s a used car. But it’s new to me. After having my 1997 Honda Civic for 9 years (my first and only car) I decided it was time for an upgrade. I probably could have driven that car for another 3-5 years, but she was getting old. So I decided to do the grown up thing. And you know what I bought? Another Honda. I couldn’t help it. My first car barely had any issues in 9 years and it had 165,000 miles on it. So I did the responsible thing, I bought a used car, in my price range, and now I have no monthly bills to pay off. Which is fantastic. I can now save up for cooler things. Like trips. Or eating yummy food on those trips. Or buying yummy food to make recipes for you guys. See, way cooler.

This may be my favorite recipe in the history of the world. Is it paleo? Of course not. But it’s magical.

I ran in the rain yesterday. Highly dislike. It’s way worse than the snow. Where the hell is spring, Colorado, you selfish b*tch. I’ve been cold all year and I’m sick of it!!!

I’m gonna make Mother’s Day scones this weekend. Sorry I won’t be able to share them with you until next week, but I have wedding stuff taking over right now, remember? No, not mine. My cousin’s. I’m actually primping my hair for the wedding right now, as you read this. So, since I won’t have a new Mother’s Day brunch recipe to share with you until next week, let’s check out a few old ones that your mother would be happy to scarf down.

  1. This recipe with the biscuits I posted yesterday. Duh.
  2. Banana bread french toast. Yes please.
  3. Brussel sprouts and Spinach Truffle Frittata. That recipe didn’t get much hype for how delicious it is. Shame.
  4. Chocolate Coffee Banana Donuts
  5. Bacon and Maple Meatballs
  6. Apple Fritters
  7. Stuffed Acorn Squash
  8. Blueberry & Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf
  9. Caramelized Onion Frittata
  10. Mexican Hash Egg Bake
  11. Savory Breakfast Casserole

That’s enough.


Raspberry Blueberry Jam


  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • juice of 1 lemon


  1. Place a small saucepanover medium heat.
  2. Add frozen berries to cook until they are heated up and juice begins to come out from the berries.
  3. Then add blueberries, honey and lemon juice.
  4. Mix well and cook for about 5-7 minutes then reduce heat and cook for another 5-7 minutes until berries have fully exploded and everything has broken down into a well combined mixture.
  5. The longer you let the jam sit on low, the more it will thicken so feel free to lower the heat and go watch a trash tv show. Like I did.
  6. Put on these biscuits.


Makes 1 (8 ounce) jar of jam.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

    God I love your posts! I read every word – including the recipes because you are just as funny writing up the recipes!
    Just received your cookbook in the mail. I love it, no complaints here. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. You should do cooking internships – jus sayin.
    I don’t know how you come up with new recipes every day – but you are an inspiration! And this ol dog needs to learn your new tricks 🙂


    1. This is an old one, but I still make it! Sometimes I use all frozen berries, sometimes half fresh – whatever I have on hand. I just go for a total of 3 cups berries. I use 1/2 c. maple syrup instead of honey. The last few times I’ve made it, I push it all through a strainer to remove the seeds and it’s even better! I personally don’t mind the seeds, but my kids complain, especially in this recipe: https://plaidandpaleo.com/2013/10/paleo-berry-glazed-crockpot-chicken.html So, I sacrifice a few minutes for them. Besides the chicken recipe above, (and obviously on some kind of bread/toast) this is amazing on some vanilla coconut milk ice cream… with some toasted pecans…. heavenly.

  3. One of my favorite things to do is run in the rain. As long as it’s not freezing cold. A warm day, with a rain/drizzle to cool you off while you’re running? Fantabulous!

    Speaking of “in the rain”, you should read “The Art of Racing in the Rain”. Here’s a couple tips though, via list style like you love:
    1. It’s not actually about running in the rain, it’s about race cars in the rain (not really, but that’s where the title comes from)
    2. The story is told from the view point of a dog
    3. You will cry.

    1. Best book ever, I second reading it.

      Also, delicious looking jam!

      ps. blueberry muffin icecream??!?!?! holy delicious.

    2. Juli Forget running in the rain you should have sex with your boyfriend in the RAIN. That’s what I’m talking about!! Anyway love your Mother’s Day food ideas and thank you.

    1. It is Paleo. The recipe she links to in “this is my favorite recipe” isn’t Paleo. I wondered the same thing and then took another look. 🙂

  4. Looks delicious! I’m making the jam and biscuits this weekend. Can you sub strawberries instead of raspberries since they are in season?

  5. I really love you for making this! but I really think you should put your food up on myfitnesspal. It would really help me a lot! Thank you!

  6. Cooking your recipes have convinced my husband that the Paleo diet is definitely worth while. Thank you, Juli. I love your posts and look forward to them. I can appreciate intelligent snark when I read it,

  7. Sounds delish! im trying it. Juli, do you know how to make this seedless? I would be the only one eating it if I let the seeds stay.

    1. After it boils down, but before it thickens, pour it through a fine mesh strainer. If you want to boil it more afterwards, feel free.

  8. My Fiance and I were planning on making jam as favors for our wedding in September. I am so happy you posted a recipe that combines our favorite berries without adding any extra sugar or pectin! We’ll be sure to share pictures of our mass production of this wonderful recipe.

  9. I don’t understand all the maple surup and honey used in your recipes. I’ve been on Paleo for 8 months and am trying to avoid sweets except for fruit. After reading The Sugar Fix I don’t think it’s advisable to use this stuff plus I don’t feel substituting “Paleo” baked goods is teaching us to live healthily — just a thought. I absolutely believe that ingesting too much of even “good” fructose (even from fruit) can make women feel hungrier thus the desire to eat too much. Beyond that, I do love many of your recipes.

    1. She specifically said it is not paleo and has repeatedly said no one needs to make any of the recipes they don’t like.
      I know how to make the substitutes I need to make the recipes my own. That’s what everyone should do. And ignore the recipes you don’t like. They are everywhere. You will drive yourself batsh-t crazy trying to make everyone else stop writing them.

  10. Made the jam this morning and let it simmer for just about an hour and it was perfect. Thanks for all you give here. I love your humor and can’t wait to read each day.

  11. Honey, where is your Mother’s Day recipe? You have wonderful recipes all of the time but you don’t have one dedicated to Mommies for this weekend. I love you girl and I’d love to see one for the Moms of the world!!

  12. I made the bacon sausage meatballs for a Mother’s Day/birthday brunch today. They were delicious and garnered rave reviews! Thank you!

  13. Juli – this jam is ridiculous! I could probably eat it with a spoon, I need to find more things to put it on. Love your recipes, love you, just got your cookbook and can’t wait to use it! BTW the plantain drop biscuits were great too, almost tasted like a fall pumpkin cookie, must be all the cinnamon 🙂 thanks girl

  14. Still driving my 2001 Honda Accord. 270,000 miles and still going! I hope I’m still driving it in 12 more years. Seriously, I really do.

    1. Melissa,

      I love Hondas. My honda is a 1998 and it still runs pretty well. I got it two years ago after my 1996 that had over 350,000 miles finally quit on me.

      Right now I am letting my jam sit until hardens. I do not always stick completely to Paleo but most of the time I do. I think it is okay to cheat once in awhile 🙂

  15. I’ve been looking for a sugar-free jam for my kids and looks one looks great! Do you know if you can just freeze batches the way you made it or do you need to add pectin? I’ve never made jam before.

  16. I just made this and the plantain muffins 2 days ago, and devoured them for breakfast. Now this morning I polished off what was left by mixing this amazing fruit goop into some vanilla Greek yogurt.

    Now I HAVE to make more. 🙂

  17. Carole’s Chatter is collecting links for jams, jellies and relishes today. This is a nice one. I do hope you pop over and link in. This is the link . Cheers

      1. Holy crap… I will DEFINITELY be making this again. It was fantastic!! I’m so glad to see a recipe which is relatively healthy, doesn’t require added pectin, and is so ridiculously easy to make. Thank you so much for this recipe :). The only trouble I had was with getting the blueberries to explode/”dissolve” into the sugar, but I think I might soak them in a little water and mash them before cooking next time. Awesome recipe!

  18. I just made the biscuits. Not sure they were a success in the looks department, but they tasted fantastic! When I opened my can of coconut milk to use in the recipe, it had hardened on top. So I put that on the biscuits because I couldn’t wait for the jam to be ready and it was amazing yummy!!! Thanks, Juli!

    1. And just realized I should have posted that on the biscuit page! Oh well! Jam is on the stove and I’m sure it will be fantastic. I just may not have anything left to put it on if it takes much longer! 🙂

  19. Can this be canned? (well jarred that is) Would it take a water bath or would it turn to a watery drink in the process?

  20. Holy YUM! Whipped up a batch of this earlier and I am in heaven! The flavor is perfect– sweet and wonderful. I had to stop myself from eating it out of the jar with a spoon with almond butter….
    I spread it on some paleo biscuits and wowza! So thankful for another great OMG recipe! You never disappoint!

  21. Hello Juli!, I just wanna say that I am new to paleo living ( 2 months) and your recipes have made the transition for me and my fiancé sooo much easier!,, I love this jam recipe and I use your recipes on a daily basis! Thanks. Quick question, we eat a lot of eggs for breakfast and I was wondering what do you eat normally for breakfast? 🙂

  22. I’m allergic to raspberries so I’m going to try this with strawberries instead. I hope it turns out okay, have you ever tried that? thanks!

    ps. i’m so happy to have found your website, all of your recipes seem amazing and i think they will definitely help my transition to the paleo lifestyle.

  23. Is it possible to make this with just raspberries? I have an uncle who loves raspberry jam and we’re trying to replace some of his favorite with a bit more paleo friendly ones.

  24. Well, I just want to eat this straight out of the jar! I love that it came out more tart than sweet. I was never a jam fan, but I am now! I have just topped my AIP fingerprint cookies with this and they are baking. Thank you!

  25. I’m wondering if lemon zest would be nice in this too? Has anyone tried it? I usually put lemon or orange zest in my homemade cranberry sauce (cranberry, honey, citrus juice and zest) and I find that it often brings out flavor even more than the juice.

  26. Just made this for the first time. Super easy and pretty tasty, although I found it to be too sweet. I only used half the amount of honey called for but it was still too much for my palate. Do you know if this jam will still thicken if I omit the honey altogether? Have you ever tried it with just the berries?

  27. Love your blog and def my fave paleo blog (pumpkin Chai bread, breakfast fave)! I am about 90%paleo with cheats with tortilla chips as my weakness! Just looked at your jam recipe for macarons!
    Totally random, but I’m the founder and inventor of a French press redesign of startup simpli press http://www.simplipresscoffee.com ! Make bulletproof all the time with it!

  28. Thank you for this yummy jam recipe. It’s fantastic, great flavor, and I love the simple ingredients that aren’t bad for my 5 year old grandson

  29. This looks great! Have you ever tried the Just Fruit Crofters strawberry spread? It looks paleo but alas it isn’t my favorite thick jam
