Today I am going to share with you guys a very special recipe! Actually, it is just a recipe that we've gotten out of a box of pectin, but my mom has made it ever since I can remember and it is delicious! It is for raspberry jam and we have to make four batches at a time to keep us in stock for a year.
Okay, so first you need your raspberries. We suggest that you get them farm fresh - they really aren't as good from the grocery store!
Then crush them up! You need exactly 3 cups of crushed raspberries.
Then stir in 5 1/4 c. sugar. Once that is all stirred up, let is sit for 10 minutes.
When the 10 minutes is almost up, get your box of pectin and mix it up with 3/4 c. water. Bring it to a boil and let it boil for 1 minute.
Then stir it in your fruit mix. Keep stirring for 3 minutes!
Then you are done! Pour it into your (perfectly clean) containers, leaving a little bit of room at the top for expansion.
Yay! Leave them at room temperature for 24 hours, then you are free to freeze or refrigerate them as you'd like!
