Raspberry in a Jam

I had a bunch of raspberries and didn’t want them to go to waste.


2 cups raspberries

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


Mash raspberries with lemon juice in a pot on the stove. Bring to a boil stirring consistently. Add two cups of warm sugar (you can hear it in the microwave for a minute) and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes. Pour into a jar, seal and then refrigerate.

You can test to see if it is done by inserting a cold spoon into the jam. If the drops start to run together it is done.
