Uncooked Raspberry Jam

One of the most wonderful spectacles in a kitchen is a row of sterilised jars awaiting freshly made jam!  They make amazing gifts and such a wonderful addition to any pantry.  In the next few posts I will pass on some very traditional jam recipes that are super easy to make...starting with one of the simplest - uncooked raspberry jam!

Uncooked Raspberry Jam

  • 2lbs raspberries
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1lb of sugar with pectin (jam sugar)

Place the raspberries in a non-metallic bowl and crush them with a wooden spoon.

Stir in the sugar and cover the bowl.  Put in the oven at the lowest setting until warm - don't allow it to get hot!

Take out of the oven and leave to stand for 1 hour.  Stir intermittently unil the sugar is dissolved.  Stir in the lemon juice.  Take some freezerproof containers and fill with the mixture - don't forget to leave room for expansion - so don't fill to the top!

Close the containers and leave at room temperature for  6 hours.  Place the containers in the refrigerator to chill for 1-2 days until it is jellied.  Store in the freezer and thaw for about 1 hour when you're ready to serve.  Once you have thawed the jam it will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days...

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
