Raspberries Preserves


My simple homemade refrigerator raspberries preserves.  No pectin required!  I reused the jam jar by washing it in the dish washer.  I have since made variety of preserves using this method and none of the jam had gone bad on me.  It didn't last that long in the refrigerator for me, but at least 6-8 months before I finished all. This preserve is delicious and nothing beat homemade!  Just remember to keep it refrigerated.


Our King Sooper has 6 oz. raspberries on sale for 88 cent each this week, which mean it's time to make raspberries preserves.  Just so happen that I only left with one jar of homemade blueberries preserves, so it comes at the right time.




Ingredients:

6,  6-oz fresh raspberries, washed
2 lb. pure cane sugar
2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Method:

In a large stock pot, add in the raspberries, turn the heat to high, stir occasionally.  Add in the cane sugar and lemon juice, let it boil.  When boiling, turn the heat to medium and let it simmer uncovered.  Stir occasionally.  The jam is ready when you stir it and it started to splatter.  Store it in individual jars, cover immediately to seal it when hot.  Let it cool at room temperature before refrigerate it.  It will last for months in the refrigerator.

Looks so delicious. I just made some apple sauce and peach butter. A friend gave me boxes of fruit from their garden. I ate most of the peaches though :)
