It's the end of August.
August, August, August.
Wasn't it just February? Where did the year go?? Seriously. Stop the calendar, I want to get off.
This is the craziest time of the year for us. Co-ops starting, fiber festivals and art fairs, holiday art fairs to get ready for, the garden producing like crazy, etc., etc., etc. Run, run, run.
Which is a convoluted way of saying that I forgot to give you the recipe for the red raspberry jam that I used in the layer jams yesterday.
I'm sorry. It's hard to make jam if you don't have the recipe.
And you should definitely make this jam.
Here it is.
Red Raspberry Jam
- 4 cups red raspberries
- 2 cups water
- 3 Tablespoons Dutch Jell All Natural Lite Pectin
- 2 cups sugar
Mix the raspberries, water and pectin in a large pot. Bring to hard rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute. Add sugar. Stir well and bring back to hard rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute. Ladle into jars. Yield 2.5 pints.
