All you need to make this handmade jam is a couple of ingredients and your kitchen. That’s it. Wondering how? Here’s how. First thing’s first, acquire the following ingredients: 2 cups of freshly-picked, perfectly-ripened raspberries and 2 cups of sugar. Thoroughly wash your berries in cold water before all else. Make sure to clean them all of dirt or debris. With an inch of water inside a pot place lidded mason jars then bring it to a boil for a few minutes. Next, place your berries inside the pot. Make sure the amount of sugar you are using is directly proportional to the amount of berries. Mix them.

 With the use of a whisk, mix the two ingredients until the juice of the berries comes out and mix well with the sugar. Still keep track of the temperature making sure it is in medium heat. Stir. When the mixture boils, lessen the heat to the point the liquid mixture rises until it reaches near the top of the pot. Do not let the mixture overflow. Now, gently and carefully transfer your mixture into your sterilized container jars. Do not fill it up so much as it might overflow.

Put the jars in your stock pot with a rack so as to not have direct contact with the pot as it might break the glass jars. Add about an inch of hot water and let it boil for another few minutes. Take the jars out and use a towel to wipe if dry and let them dry for about a day before use. By the way, you can add a little pat of margarine to make it foamier. Having one of the healthiest fruits in the world as your everyday jam is a privilege, cherish it.
