Raspberry Jam

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Course: Condiment


  • 4 heaping cups of ripe red raspberries
  • 3 ¼ cups turbinado sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime


  • Place all of the ingredients in a large pot and, over medium-high heat, bring it to a boil. You need a candy thermometer to check when the jam is done-- it makes life much easier. All you need to do is wait until the temperature reaches 221 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring a few times while you wait. If you don't have a candy thermometer, let the mixture come to a boil and let it go for about 8 minutes. When you put a drop of jam in a glass plate and put it in the freezer. If it gels, it is ready, otherwise boil for some more time and repeat the test.
  • When the jam's cooled slightly, transfer to airtight jars. Since I don't use sterilized jars (just very clean ones) because I didn't mean to keep these for a long time, you do need to refrigerate if you use this method of preserving. Otherwise, google up canning instructions and follow them.
  • I got just enough to fill three recycled jam jars of 13 ounces each.
