And this has me beaming. Ten teeny, perfect jars of non-floaty-fruit raspberry jam, with seeds evenly distributed throughout! Just raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Even better, there are more raspberries than sugar. And the best? The raspberries are all from our backyard!
Our raspberry patch requires an hour or two of maintenance a year - just enough to cut down last year's canes at the end of the winter. If we were fussy about it looking orderly, it would require more, and the berries probably wouldn't produce as well, since that always seems to be the way. The canes are thornless, so we can dive right in to pick them, and the berries are very large.
The recipe is from Well Preserved, a canning book I love. What have you made lately?
