Freezer Raspberry Jam recipe

At this time of year this is one of the most popular reasons for people finding my blog. So it must be worth repeating again.

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)

Method:

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.
