Freezer Raspberry Jam recipe

I can’t recommend this recipe highly enough. Even non-jam-makers can do it. And it truly tastes of rasps because none of the flavour has been boiled out.

2.5 lbs Rasps

4lbs caster sugar

4 tbsp lemon juice

bottle Certo (found in large supermarkets near jam making stuff)


Crush berries (I use potato masher)

Add sugar and lemon juice

Leave to stand for 1 – 1.5 hours

Stir and add Certo

Stir well for 2-3 minutes

Put in small containers (I use Lock ‘n’ Lock or old ice-cream pots)

Leave 12-24 hours

Put in freezer

Take out as required and keep in fridge while using.

  1. Ok – you have prompted me to look at Rhubarb & Ginger Jam recipes so well done.

    The only thing confusing me about your recipe is….. What is a small Ice Cream tub and how come you have some?

    Nicotene free – well done!!

  2. You know that sneaky little tub of Ben and Jerry’s that you have late at night in front of the TV… Oh is it just me then?

    Mind you I am still substituting food for fags and hope it doesn’t last much longer.

  3. If giving up smoking is turning you to food and you are becoming fat may I give you the following dietry advice?

    Buy broken biscuits as all the calories have run out. Food eaten straight from the fridge, off children’s plates, while standing up, where nobody can see you or if it would otherwise be wasted likewise has few if any calories. Ice-cream from the bottom half of the tub is less fattening than that in the top half.

  4. Re St Mark’s website – why are you intending to put someone in prison without trial?
    Pretty harsh even if the parishioners aren’t behaving themselves!

  5. Ann, that’s how I was taught to spell it at Theological College. If you Google ‘internment of ashes’ you will see that a zillion other churches spell it that way too. (Yes, I have seen it spelt without the ‘n’ too.)

  6. You want to get your money back from that college. I bet they didn’t even do Latin or they would have known that was the wrong spelling.

  7. Definitions of ‘internment’ – 3 definitions – WordNet

    internment (n.) confinement during wartime
    internment (n.) the act of confining someone in a prison (or as if in a prison)
    internment (n.) placing private property in the custody of an officer of the law

    a burial
