I love freezer jam! There’s nothing else like it. The taste of fresh fruit. The sweet, thick flavor and texture. For me, store bought jam just doesn’t cut it.
To do so, add raspberries and 3/4 cup water to a large bowl.
Toss raspberries in water until they are fully hydrated and extremely soft and moist. DO NOT DRAIN WATER!
Next, add sugar and lemon juice and stir.
Pour in ultra gel and stir together until jam is thick and smooth.
Using a wide mouth jar, pour jam evenly into each jar, but do not overfill.
Place lid on jar and place in freezer for 2-3 hours, or up to 6-12 months. Before serving, remove and allow to thaw. Keep in refrigerator after that.
You will not believe how delicious this jam tastes! With just the right amount of sweet and savory, this jam is perfect for spreading on dinner rolls, toast, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or anything else you can think of. The freeze dried raspberries give the perfect amount of tang without overpowering the jam. One taste, and you’ll swear you’re trying your Grandma’s famous jam!
It’s time to become a freezer jam lover again, and with a recipe as easy as this, why wouldn’t you?
