Raspberry Jam Recipe


  • 2 pounds raspberries
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. In a preserving pan over medium heat, mash the raspberries with a potato masher. Add the sugar and lemon juice. Continue to heat the mixture, stirring gently, until the sugar is dissolved. Raise the heat to medium-high, and boil the mixture, stirring frequently, to 218 degrees F. or until a drop of the jam mounds in a chilled dish. This will take about 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. Ladle the jam into pint or half-pint mason jars, add lids and rings, and process the jars in a boiling-water bath or steam canner for 10 minutes.
