Yes- you are reading this right- I am posting a recipe on homemade raspberry jam! I found this recipe on the Internet and I am so happy that I did. When I say that this recipe is easy- I truly mean it! It turns out super yummy- and really once you do it- you will want to make it for everyone you know, because you will feel so special that you actually made jam- you will want to share it with everybody!! From start to finish about 25 minutes!  Trust me- if I can do it- so can you....

Raspberry Jam

Ingredients:
4 cups mashed raspberries
4 cups sugar
Because Raspberries have natural pectin you don't have to use any!

2. Heat mashed berries until they reach a full rolling boil.
3. Boil 5 minutes.
4. Add sugar.
5. Stir well.
6. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, boil for 5 minutes.
7. Remove from heat.
8. Beat with rotary beater for 4 minutes
9. Pour in sterilized jars and seal.
let set at room temperature and there you have it! RASPBERRY JAM!
