Easy Homemade Freezer Jam, as in no canning skills or equipment required! This is my all time favorite jam! I've been making it for 10+years, it's the only jam I make now. Everyone always loves it and it freezes for up to 1 year! Recipe makes about 6 cups, or 48 (2 Tbsp) servings.
Ready in: 1day25minutes
4cupscrushed raspberries (from about 6 cups whole raspberries, approximately 32 oz.)*
3 1/2cups (700g)granulated sugar**
1(1.75 oz) pkg.Sure-Jell For Less or No Sugar Needed Recipes Fruit Pectin(currently the pink box, don't use "Original")
Have clean and dry food storage containers or jars ready and set aside***.
Use a dry measuring cup to measure out exact amount of crushed fruit. Pour into a large bowl, set aside.
Measure out exact amount of sugar into a large saucepan or medium pot (I use a 4 qt). Add pectin powder and whisk to blend. Stir in water.
Bring mixture to a full boil over medium-high heat stirring constantly. Boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat.
Immediately stir in crushed raspberries and stir 1 minute.
Pour into prepared jars leaving at least 1/2-inch space at the top for jam to expand once frozen (otherwise jars can crack!). Cover with lids.
Let rest at room temperature 24 hours then transfer to freezer (I save one for the fridge).
Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 1 year. Once frozen thaw overnight in refrigerator.
*To crush raspberries I use a potato masher and crush to nearly a puree with some chunky texture. If preferred you can strain half the fruit through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds, though I never do this.
*If raspberries aren't tart I also like to mix in 1 Tbsp lemon juice with them.
**Do not reduce or increase sugar amount or jam may not set properly.
** I use 1 cup containers, you'll need about 9 of that size since you don't fill all the way to the top.
Recipe from Sure-Jell. Not sponsored I just love the product and jam.
