Raspberry Freezer Jam~



Raspberries are a few of my favorite things~ 

Raspberry Freezer Jam Recipe

3 1/4 cups crushed raspberries 
5 cups granulated sugar 
1 teaspoon lemon juice 
3/4 cup water 
1 package of Sure Jell

Wash and drain your raspberries using a colander. You will need 4 cups of picked raspberries to equal 3 1/4 cups of crushed berries. After washing your berries, place them in a food processor or blender container. Process the berries until they are the consistency of a thick jam.

In a large bowl, combine crushed raspberries, granulated sugar and lemon juice. Stir ingredients together using a silicone spatula. Let this mixture sit for 20-25 minutes.

In a small saucepan, combine water with 1 box of Sure Jell. Bring mixture to a boil and boil for exactly one minute. Remove from burner and pour Sure Jell mixture into the berries mixture. Stir with the silicone spatula until all ingredients are combined.

Use a ladle and spoon mixture into small freezer-safe containers, leaving 1/2" head space in the container. Seal containers and place into the freezer for 48 hours before using.

Storage: The jam will keep for up to 1 year in the freezer and up to 1 week in the refrigerator. When ready to use, remove 1 container at a time from your freezer and place into your refrigerator 2 hours before serving.

Mmmm...this sounds so good! Am I right to assume this could be made with strawberries or blackberries as well?

Sounds good. But why does it only keep for one week in the refrig? I've made jam before but the old fashioned way and it was so hard and time consuming. This sounds so much more easier! Thanks for the recipe and the tips!
