Raspberries are a sour berry and this is why you need equal amounts of sugar to berries. I have less in this batch only because I like my raspberry jam a little tart but you can also add some lemon juice to you berries while they are cooking to keep the tart taste. But if you find your jam is not thickening for you boil a little longer and you can add the extra cup of sugar. You can also mash your berries or leave them whole for more texture, if you don't want to bottle your jam you can freeze in freezer bags or containers.
If you are looking for a berry that is totally the easiest berry to pick, will’ this is the one. My husband don’t like picking berries but when I say come with me and pick some raspberries he is the first in line. 🤗 I can’t say enough good about picking any berry and/or growing them, shopping local for fresh fruit and vegetables. Cooking at home and making your own jams, jellies, soup and so much more……
I love this time of year because of all the berries and freshly grown food you can get, I’m sure there must be more people out there like me. Traditional Newfoundland Bakeapple Jam
When making raspberry jam keep in mind that you may need to boil the berry a little longer then some, they give off more liquid and you need to condense this and add equal amounts of sugar. These delicious berry comes from the same family as a blackberries or plum boys they look the same only a different colour.
