Simple Summer Berry Freezer Jam

Weddings are the perfect occasion to share some of your favorite recipes or traditions with friends and family. We adore the idea of creating a take-away gift for your guests from either an old family recipe, or a fresh one that can act as a new tradition for your newly created family. How sweet would it be to look back and tell your children how you gave this exact jam away to guests at your wedding? To make this recipe extra special, we prepared it in a jam pan from our favorite registry, Zola. We’re fans of this all-in-one registry because it makes registering for gifts, experiences & honeymoon funds easy and beautiful. Intrigued? Set up your registry today and get $25 to spend.
