Easy Raspberry Jam

Raspberry  jam is like a dessert at our house and I want to show you how easy it is to make.   It really is as simple as making instant pudding!  Freezer jam can be made from fresh or frozen berries, so stock up when berries are on sale or freeze your extra fruit.   I have switched to use Ball Pectin instead of MCP Pectin.  Ball Pectin only takes 3 minutes to stir, 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 30 minutes to sit on your counter and you are DONE.   Now that is easy!

Homemade Freezer Jam

Yield: 5 ( 8 oz) half pints

4 cups crushed fruit (apricots, berries, grapes, pears, plums, peaches or other tender fruit.)

1 package (1.59 ounces) Ball pectin

1 1/2 cups sugar or Splenda

Stir sugar and pectin in a bowl.  Add crushed fruit.  Stir 3 minutes.  Ladle jam into clean jars leaving a 1/2 inch space at the top to allow for expansion and let stand 30 minutes.  Enjoy.

Freezer up to 1 year or refrigerate up to 3 weeks.
