In a 6-8 quart stainless steel or enamel pot, combine the berries and lemon juice. Stir in the pectin.

Place the pot over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Immediately add the honey and stir until mixture comes to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down. Start timing for 10 to 12 minutes, continuing to stir slowly. Jam will foam at first. When ready, the jam will feel thick and sticky when stirred. The color will be a deep garnet red.

Ladle into hot, scalded half-pint jars, leaving 1/4" headspace, and seal. Process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes. Yields 4 half pints.
