Raspberry Jam

I love eating raspberries they are sweet and sour at the same time so I kinda went crazy and bought a bunch of them the other day and I just couldn’t finish them all so I made a raspberry jam that would last longer. You can use it for a lot of things like in cheesecake tartlets 

- 1 pound of fresh raspberries
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1 small cinnamon stick
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla

1. Put all the ingredients in a medium pot and boil them for about 30 minutes or until the liquid looks thick. You can crush the raspberries completely or you can leave small chunks, I left big chunks on mine.

[ the cinnamon stick is optional but it gives the mermalade a holliday flavor ]

Pour the hot mermalade on top of vanilla ice cream, you know... it is better to eat it with ice cream

And why not? top it with a chocolate dipped cookie :) it is the best!


  1. Raspberries are the BEST!, and this looks so amazing!

  2. yumm i'm craving something sweet right this minute and my life would be complete if i had a bite of that... haha the chocolate dipped cookie is a great addition too.

  4. Raspberry jam is the only kind I ever buy. I would never have thought it was so easy to make myself!
