Over the last few months I have been collecting raspberries and freezing them so I can make jam. To make the jam I simply boiled the raspberries with a little bit of water. Then I added sugar and pectin to help the jam set. After about half an hour of the mixture bubbling away I tested it using the finger test method – I put a teaspoon of jam onto a cold plate, let it cool and then pushed it with my finger. Once it wrinkled up with a skin, we knew it was ready. I kept testing until I obtained the wrinkling. I transferred it into our jam jar and let it cool.
After it was cooled we had some on prairie bread and home made butter. It was so good!
