Holiday Jam

This jam has such a fun combination of flavors. Thanks to four different kinds of berries and and infusion of fresh orange zest! I love this jam during the whole Holiday Season, starting in November all the way through December! Add a loaf of bread and it makes a perfect neighbor Christmas gift!
