Raspberry Freezer Jam
This delicious raspberry freezer jam does not require cooking, sterilizing jars, or processing. Just mix and freeze.
Since there's no cooking involved, the jam retains that fresh-fruit taste, and is literally "bursting with flavor."
2 cups raspberries (mashed)
2 tablespoons instant pectin - for no-cook freezer jam
2/3 cup sugar
Use fresh raspberries that are ripe but firm. Choose containers with straight sides (not inverted at the top).
Whisk the sugar and fruit pectin together in a bowl.
Wash raspberries and mash them in a separate bowl. Add the sugar-pectin mixture to raspberries and mix well.
Ladle into clean freezer containers leaving 1/2 inch of headspace to allow for expansion in the freezer.
Let mixture stand 30 minutes to set. Freeze.
Note: Freezer jam does not set as thick as cooked jam.
Do not double the recipe; make one batch at a time to aid in setting.
Makes 2 half pints.
