  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, mashed
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (1 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1.75 ounces Sure-Jell Fruit Pectin
  • 3 half-pint jars


  • Mash fresh raspberries and measure out exactly 1 cup of the mashed fruit.
  • Place raspberries in a mixing bowl and add the sugar. Stir until well combined.
  • Stir in lemon juice and vanilla and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • While the raspberry mixture is resting, prepare pectin.
  • Combine pectin and water in a small pan and whisk together over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, while stirring frequently.
  • Once boiling, set timer for 1 minute and cook, stirring constantly. Do not cook pectin for more than 1 minute.
  • Add pectin to raspberry mixture and stir until all the sugar has been dissolved.
  • Once the sugar has been dissolved, you are ready to place into jars. Make sure jars are clean and dry before storing jam.
  • Fill jars until jam reaches ½ inch from the top.
  • Seal jars tightly with a lid and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours before placing in the freezer or refrigerator.


  • If you want to make a low sugar or no-sugar version of this freezer raspberry jam, you will need to get specific pectin for this. Don’t just reduce the sugar as the recipe won’t work.
  • If you don’t like seeds in your jam, it is easy to remove them. Once you have mashed the raspberries, put them through a fine metal strainer which will remove the seeds. Make sure you still get 1 cup of raspberries after straining and add more if needed to ensure you have the right ratio.
  • Be sure to let the jam cool completely before chilling.
