Freezer jam

This is so ridiculously easy I can't believe I've never done it before. I picked up a half-case of raspberries at Costco that looked great, but tasted pretty bland, so I decided to stretch my homemaking abilities and make jam. Now that I know how easy it is, our freezer will be stocked. If anyone reading this is just as clueless as I was (and I doubt that), here's the recipe:

Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1 package Ball No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin together, then add 6 6-oz. containers of raspberries, crush and mix for three minutes, then let it stand for 30 minutes.

Most of the pectin boxes had recipes with triple the amount of sugar, so this isn't too sweet, but it's yummy!

And on top of a sourdough English muffin...mmmmm!

Huh. I think I'm going to Costco for raspberries tomorrow.

It looks tasty. I remember my mom making it, but I've never done it myself. Thought about it lots though. Good to see you back from sabbatical/

YEAH - you're blogging again! The jam looks great - I remember making it back in our Provo house with all the apricots that would fall off our big tree - haven't made it since, so thanks for the reminder of it's simplicity!
