  • 2 cups prepared fruit buy 4 ½ pint cartons (2 pints) OR 2 12-ounce packages of frozen raspberries
  • 4 cups sugar measured into separate bowl
  • 1 3-ounce pouch CERTO Liquid Fruit Pectin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  1. Wash glass jars or plastic containers and lids with hot soapy water. Rinse well then dry thoroughly. (I like to run them through the dishwasher.)
  2. Thaw raspberries and crush them thoroughly (I use a potato masher for this). Measure exactly 2 cups of the crushed berries into a large bowl. Stir in sugar until thoroughly combined. Scrape sides of the bowl to incorporate sugar crystals along the edges.

Use either of these methods:
  1. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a plate and let stand at room temperature for 6-8 hours.

  1. Place the bowl in the microwave and cook on high power for 3 minutes then stir well again. Take a little taste. If there are still some sugar crystals, give the mixture another 1-2 minutes in the microwave. 

To finish:
  1. Mix pectin and lemon juice. Add to raspberry mixture; stir for 3 minutes.
  2. Fill containers to within ½ inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers and cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours.
  3. Jam is now ready to use. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 1 year. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.
