Key Ingredients

ingredients in bowls raspberries and sugar.

Sugar – to sweeten up the jam. You won’t need a lot. Substitute with monkfruit if you’d like a sugar-free jam that’s still sweet!

How to make Raspberry Jam

Steps 1 & 2: Wash and combine

Wash your fresh raspberries. (Throw the bad ones away that you might have picked.)

Into a large bowl, add the raspberries and sugar.

Step 3: Mash

With a potato masher squish the raspberries, mixing them with the sugar. (I like to have some whole raspberries, so I smash a little and then just mix with a spoon.)

Let it stand for 1 hour.

Step 5: Freeze

After an hour, pour into plastic containers, and put in the freezer. Then just defrost when you are ready to eat it.

Expert Tips:

  • Use a ratio of 1 cup of raspberries to ½ cup of sugar. First, count how many cups of raspberries you have and then add in the sugar.
  • Allow the raspberry jam to rest for an hour before freezing so the flavors meld together. This leaves time for multitasking, too.
  • Store the jam in plastic containers. Freezing glass jars can cause them to explode. 

Recipe FAQs:

Can I use frozen berries?

No, we freeze the jam after the berries have been mashed. When we mash frozen and thawed berries, they release too much excess water.

How to store raspberry jam?

Store the raspberry jam containers in the freezer. They last for up to a year in an airtight container!

Can I use other fruits?

Yes, you can make quick strawberry jam or blackberries for a tasty jam. Make sure the fruits are in season!
