Learn how to make easy raspberry, blueberry and fig Jams with just three ingredients in this episode of Best Bites. 

We recommend using smaller jars (4 to 6-ounce sizes) and sterilizing them before use. If you're not familiar with canning jams or the sterilization process, you should refrigerate these jams and use within one month.
