Raspberry Freezer Jam

Description

Raspberry Freezer Jam is a staple at our house. This recipe is easy and in my opinion the best raspberry jam ever. Even if you’ve never made jam, this one is a cinch to make.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 cups fresh raspberries (3 cups total mashed)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 box Sure Jell Pectin
  • 3/4 cup cold water

Instructions

  1. Add raspberries to a large bowl and lightly mash them. Be careful not to over mash them, they should still be slightly chunky.
  2. Measure out exactly 3 cups of mashed berries and pour them into a separate large bowl.
  3. Add the sugar and mix well and then let stand for 10 minutes, stirring 3 or 4 more times during that 10 minutes.
  4. In a small saucepan, stir together pectin with 3/4 cup water. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Once it reaches a rolling boil, boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  5. Stir pectin into the berries mixture and continue to stir for 3 minutes.
  6. Pour jam into containers, leaving 1/2 inch of space at the top of the container, for expansion. Cover with lid and allow jam to rest at room temperature for 24 hours before freezing. *This makes about 6 to 7 cups of jam.
  7. Jam will keep for up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator, or freeze for up to one year.
