Any combination of fresh or frozen summer fruits totaling 4 cups (after being crushed or mashed) will work. Use half strawberries for a very pretty dark red color. Make the spread with a greater proportion of cherries and blueberries for a deep purple color – equally tasty.” (Note: You may substitute frozen fruit. Just thaw and mash.)


2 cups crushed fresh strawberries
1 cup crushed fresh peaches
1/2 cup crushed fresh blueberries
1/2 cup crushed fresh sweet cherries
1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered pectin
2 cups honey
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Combine the strawberries, peaches, blueberries, cherries, and pectin in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook for 1 minute. Add the honey and lemon juice. Return to a rolling boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and skim off the foam. Ladle into sterilized jars, seal, and process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes.
