Celebrate National Jam Day with our Twice as Good Raspberry Jam!

Yield: 16 Ounces Cooking Time: 45 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

Directions:

  1. Rise raspberries and allow to air dry in strainer for 2 minutes.
  2. Transfer raspberries to large pot. Add apple cider, sugar, and lemon juice.
  3. Cook over medium low heat for 20-45 minutes stirring frequently.
  4. After cooking for about 30 minutes test jam by dipping a metal spoon into mixture. Next run your finger down back of spoon to make a line in the middle. If the jam holds its shape on both sides, it is ready. If the middle becomes flooded with jam continue to cook, testing every 5 minutes. Once thickened add salt.
