To measure the pH use an electronic pH meter, and determination of citric acid will be a little harder as there are probably many other acidic compounds in your jam such as ferulic acid, flavonoids, ellagic acid, ursolic acid, and gallic acid to name a few. I think it will be difficult to extract all the citric acid, but here (obtained from this thread) is a good method of extraction. This way you don't need to do any titrimetric analysis.
