Gedney since 1881. Ginny Bratton's Blue Ribbon recipe. Award winning Minnesota State Fair recipe. Here I am, 51, a wife, mom and school bus driver and now this! I am just ecstatic! This was only the second time I entered the Fair and my jam took blue ribbons both times. My husband likes this jam better that plain strawberry because the blueberries and raspberries cut the sweetness - yet you can still taste all three flavors. To think it all happened because I had leftover berries, because Jim said 'honey, this is a winner, put it in the fair!'- and because the good Lord nudged me to write this recipe down!
