Freezer Jam

For the lovely Misses M, here's my most favorite (and very sweet!) freezer jam recipe (from Certo):

Quick & Easy Raspberry Freezer Jam

2 cups crushed raspberries
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 cups sugar
1 pouch Certo pectin

  1. Wash and rinse plastic containers (1 to 2 cup size)
  2. Prepare fruit (sieve 1/2 of the pulp if desired).
  3. Stir sugar into prepared fruit. Let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir pectin into lemon juice.
  5. Stir pectin mixture into prepared fruit. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved (about 3 minutes).
  6. Pour into containers- leave 1/2 inch at top for expansion.
  7. Let stand at room temp. for 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks. Store in freezer for up to 1 year.
And there you have it, super simple raspberry jam, without all the corn syrup and preservatives.


  1. Thank you! I can't wait to try it.

  2. Hope it works well for you! I use it for all sorts of things- my favorite lately being raspberry lemonade.
