Top It Off... Berried Dessert Topping


Berried Dessert Topping
Found on Vicki's Canning World

This recipe yields about 3 pints

1 quart sliced strawberries 

2 cups granulated sugar 

1 cup brown sugar 

1/4 cup lemon juice 

1 tablespoon grated lemon peel 

1/4 teaspoon coriander 

2 cups raspberries 

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand jars and closures according to manufacturer's instructions.

Combine strawberries, sugars, lemon juice, grated lemon peel and coriander in a large saucepot. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar. Add raspberries. Simmer until mixture starts to thicken, about 15 minutes. Add almonds and continue cooking 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Carefully ladle hot topping into hot jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met -- fingertip tight.

Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. At elevations higher than 1,000 feet, boil 2 additional minutes for each additional 1,000 feet elevation.
