This amazing, easy canned Blueberry Raspberry Jam Recipe is so very berry lip-smacking good!
If you are looking for the best cooked berry jam recipe, you have found a very good choice here!
Not only does this jam TASTE scrumptious, but it's made of healthy berries ... and these berries are high in antioxidants ... and that's berry good too!
Note - if you wish to remove some, or all of the raspberry seeds, you will need more than the 2 cups of raspberries to start with.
I find that for removing the seeds of a smaller quantity of raspberries, that a metal sieve, (as the ones shown below), works fine.
For separating the seeds of a larger quantity of raspberries, you may find the jelly bag strainer (as shown below) more effective.
