Rinse and pick over the berries. Combine the berries (cut up any large berries) and jam sugar in a pan and boil for 3-10 minutes, depending on the type of berry. The jam should be neither too solid nor too runny. Skim off any foam thoroughly, and pour into hot, very clean jars. Seal and store in a cool place.
