Raspberry Jam

After trying out blackberry jam and discovering how tasty a home made jam can taste. My next attempt was to make raspberry jam and this jam sure is a home runner for it's taste, texture & ease to make this jam.

Ingredients

1/2 cup - Mashed Raspberry ( 6 oz yields 1/2 cup mashed berry)
1 - Grated Apple ( red delicious apple )
3/4 cup - Sugar

Method

1 ) To a saucepan, add mashed raspberry, grated apple and sugar. On a medium high heat, stir and cook for 10 minutes. Ingredients will cook together and a bit of foaming layer can be seen forming. Lower the heat to medium and cook till thick bubbles start forming. Cook till the jam reaches a semi-liquid consistency. Turn off the stove.

2 ) After the jam cools down a bit and when still warm pour the jam into sterilized glass jars. In the glass jar the jam will settle down and thicken up even more, when it has completely cooled down.

3 ) Store in the refrigerator after completely cooling down.

Spread jam on a bread and serve.

Check out Blackberry jam and see some detailed pictures.

Note : If you prefer your jam a bit less sweeter, you can reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup.

Is making Jam this easy? I never even used to read any recipe with words preserve, jam, jelly thinking it would be complicated. Now Smuckers is going to have one less customer. Thanks to you I am entering the world Jam making pretty soon.
