I love eating raspberries whole but I also love raspberry jams and preserves. Raspberry jams and preserves go great with cottage cheese, cheese, crackers, pancakes, crepes, or fresh white bread. What I love the most, however, is making my own type of raspberry jam. What I do is purée the raspberries, with sugar, in a blender. It is really easy to make, and takes very little time. The result is delicious. Way better than those jams and preserves found in stores.

Instructions

  1. Wash lots of raspberries, wipe them dry and add to the blender. (I would blend a cup of raspberries at a time.)
  2. Add the sugar (For every cup of raspberries you need about half a cup of sugar. You can add more sugar for a sweeter taste.)
  3. Cover the lid and press the Purée setting for a minute or so, until every berry is puréed and the sugar is mixed.
  4. When done, stir with a wooden spatula and remove the contents into a glass jar with a tight lid. Store in the refrigerator and be sure to consume it in a short amount of time as it may spoil since these are not preserves.

If you love raspberries give this puréed raspberries recipe a try. And if you want to try other raspberry recipes check out the Raspberry Delights book. You're going to love it.

      Thanks Relationshipc. I love raspberries so much. I went raspberry picking a few times to a farm and it was a lot of fun. They were delicious. I agree with you that there are tons of recipes that pureed rapsberries can be used in.

      It's raspberry season here, and this sounds like a very easy way to enjoy the raspberries. I can think of a ton of recipes I can add this puree to. We are picking up another HUGE batch of raspberries this weekend, so this will be one of my uses.

      Regis - Glad you think my "concoctions" look delicious. Maybe you will actually try making them one of these days. :) By the way, what's your favorite berry?

      Sweet! Even I who do not have a "sweet tooth" have to admit that your "concoctions" look delicious. Thank you, Lena.

      Denise Handlon - Thanks for your feedback. My favorite berry is wild strawberries, but I am a big fan of raspberries too.

      Hope you will enjoy this recipe once you bring it to life. :)

      I can't share a link to my books here so I put it in my profile. I will also add their titles too. Thanks for asking about them.

      Shawn Scarborough - Thanks for your feedback.

      Yes, you can use the pureed raspberries as a jam. You can even make a refreshing drink out of it. Just take a cup of water and add a spoonful of the pureed raspberries to the water and stir. You can add a bit of lemon to it as well. If a spoonful of the pureed raspberries is not enough you can always add more.
