Bursting with the color and fresh flavor of summer berries, Red Raspberry Freezer Jam is delicious and easy to make. Have 10 jars done in just 30 minutes!


  • 4 cups (950ml) crushed Red Raspberries (about 5 1/2 – 6oz packages)
  • 6 cups (1200g) white sugar
  • 3/4 cup (200ml) cold water
  • 7 Tbsp pectin (approximately 1 package of sure-jell)
  • 12 half pint jam jars with rings and lids


  1. Wash the jars/rings/lids in hot soapy water or put them through the dishwasher to sterilize them.
  2. In a large glass bowl (at least 2 quarts/litres) crush the raspberries in layers, one package at a time.
  3. Add the sugar and stir until the colors clear.
  4. Let the fruit sit for ten minutes. After about 5 minutes I start on the next step so that the pectin is ready after the fruit is done resting.
  5. Put the water into a small pan over medium heat and whisk in the pectin. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.
  6. Pour into the fruit mixture and stir continuously for 3 minutes.
  7. Ladle into clean jam jars leaving a half inch at the top for the jam to expand as it freezes. Wipe the rims and outsides of your jars with a clean damp cloth before screwing on the lids.
  8. Label your jars and let them sit for 24 hours before putting them into the freezer.
  9. Makes 10 half pint jars.


Substitute black raspberries for an equally tasty variation.

I don’t recommend subbing fruit other than raspberries in this specific recipe as each type of fruit needs to have its proportions tailored to fit.
