Old Fashioned Summer Raspberry Jam

Summer is well on its  way and one of the things that I am most looking forward to is going berry hunting to make homemade jams! Last summer Jake & I went out with our friends, Sam & Sarah, and gathered tons of delicious wild raspberries for jam.

Here is the recipe we used:
4 cups of raspberries
4 cups of sugar
-Use a large pot.
-When the jam reaches a full rolling boil it will double in volume.
-Heat mashed berries until they reach a full rolling boil.
-Boil 2 minutes.
-Add sugar.
-Stir well.
-Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, boil for 2 minutes.
-Remove from heat.
-Beat with rotary beater for 4 minutes
-Pour in sterilized jars and seal.

Once raspberry season is well under way I will write a more detailed post with step-by-step photos :)

Happy Thursday!
