Rinse fruit and pat dry. In a medium saucepan combine berries, sugar, salt, lime juice & zest.

Cook over medium heat until it reaches a low boil. Stir constantly. Mash fruit up using an immersion blender or potato masher. (I used a masher as I like my jam chunky). Allow to simmer for 25-30 minutes. Ladle into sterilized 8 oz jars and cover. with clean lids & bands. Process in a water bath for 10 minutes.
