This fresh-tasting raspberry freezer jam, prepared with fresh or frozen berries, can be made any time of year! And it takes less than 10-minutes of hands-on time!
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.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a plate and let stand at room temperature for 6-8 hours.
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.
