Health Benefits of Fresh Raspberry Jam

There are many heath benefits to making your own fresh raspberry freezer jam too. Raspberries are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Some of these vitamins are destroyed during traditional commercial processing. By making your own fresh jam at home you can be sure that you are getting the full benefit of the fresh raspberry.

Vitamins and Minerals

Fresh raspberries are full of healthy vitamin C, B-6, niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid. These vitamins help fight free radicals. They also help your body as co-factors so that your body can metabolize fat. Raspberries also contain some very helpful minerals such as potassium, manganese, copper, iron, magnesium. Potassium helps regulate blood pressure and copper helps your body produce new red blood cells.

Cook Time

Ready in: 30 min
Yields: Makes 6 cups of jam

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Fresh raspberries, washed and dried

Putting it all together

  1. Mash up 2 cups of fresh raspberries in a casserole dish with a potato masher.
  2. Then pour the crushed berries into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add four cups of sugar to the crushed raspberries and stir until well mixed. Then let set for ten minutes. This allows the sugar to really dissolve.
  4. Next add the pectin and lemon juice to the mixture and stir.
  5. When all of the ingredients are well mixed. You are ready to ladel the jam into jars. Be sure to leave at least a half inch of space at the top to allow for expansion as the jam freezes. Then screw on the lids securely.
  6. Allow your jars of jam to set for twenty four hours before placing in the freezer.
