Note - If you are removing all or some of the seeds, be sure to have 4 cups of crushed raspberries left for this jam recipe.

4 cups crushed red or black raspberries (or mixed)

6 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 tsp. margarine

1 3-ounce pouch liquid pectin


To sterilize jars, wash and rinse them in the dishwasher and keep them warm.

Put lids in a small pan, cover with water and boil for 10 minutes.

Turn off the heat, but keep the lids warm.

Crush the raspberries (remove seeds if desired), and measure 4 cups of crushed raspberries.

Place the crushed raspberries and the sugar in a large pan, and mix thoroughly.

Bring the above mixture to a full, rolling boil over high heat.

Add the margarine and continue to stir as it melts.

Pour in the pectin all at once, stirring vigorously.

When the mixture reaches a full, rolling boil again, stir for 1 minute.

Remove the pan from the heat, and skim off any foam from the top.

Using a ladle, fill the jars with jam up to 1/8 inch from the rim.

With a damp cloth, wipe the jar rims. (The jar rims must be perfectly clean, or they will not seal properly.)

Quickly place the lids on top of the jars and screw on tightly.

Set the jars upside down on a dry towel.

Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
