Raspberry Freezer Jam Recipe and Video: It’s raspberry season and we are fortunate to have friends with raspberry bushes. Our Facebook followers suggested that we make jam and since we have never done that before we thought we would give it a whirl.
Deciding on raspberry freezer jam, we searched the web for the perfect recipe and they were all pretty much the same and all seemed simple. From start to finish it took about 30 minutes.
3 cups prepared fruit (about 6 cups red raspberries)
5 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl
3/4 cup water
1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
Crush raspberries thoroughly, one layer at a time (we used a potato masher.) Measure exactly 3 cups crushed raspberries into large bowl. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally.
Mix water and pectin in large saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling and stirring 1 min. Then add the fruit mixture; stir 3 min.or until sugar is almost dissolved and no longer grainy.
Fill your containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of top. Clean the top edges of the containers and then immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Jam is now ready to use. You can store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers for up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
We will be making this again with blueberries! If you have a different way of making freezer jam be sure to comment below.
