Annette Burmeister notes that any combination of fresh or frozen summer fruits totaling 4 cups (after being crushed or mashed) will work with this recipe for Harvest Honey Fruit Spread.. She says, "I used half strawberries for the prizewinning batch and got a very pretty dark red color. I have made the spread with a greater proportion of cherries and blueberries and gotten a deep purple color -- equally tasty." Annette started experimenting with honey recipes when she had a beehive that produced more than 10 gallons of honey each year. (Note: You may substitute frozen fruit. Just thaw and mash.)

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

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.
