About our raspberry jam

Is there anything more wonderful than a jar of fresh homemade Raspberry Jam?

Sandwiched between the layers of a Victoria Sponge, paired with clotted cream in a freshly baked scone or simply spread on a slice of crisp toast for breakfast, the possibilities are endless. What's more, you can make batches and share it with friends and family as delightful homemade gifts.

  1. Step 1

    Sterilise your jam jars.

  2. Step 2

    Put the sugar into an oven proof dish and place in the oven at the lowest setting for about 15 minutes until warm, but do not allow to become hot.

    Ingredients for this step

    • Silver Spoon Jam Sugar (1kg)
  3. Step 3

    Place the raspberries in a non-metallic bowl and crush with a potato masher. Add the jam sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves.

    Ingredients for this step

    • Raspberries (800g)
  4. Step 4

    Put the mixture into a saucepan and place on a high heat, bringing the mixture to a full rolling boil, that bubbles vigorously, rises in the pan and cannot be stirred down. Once it gets to this point, start timing and boil for 4 minutes only.


  5. Step 5

    Remove from the heat, working quickly and pot into warm jam jars and cover.

When I read this recipe I thought it was too easy to work

wrong!!!! It's a great recipe and works every time. So easy even my husband now makes the jam.
Because it is boiled for such a short time it retains a wonderfully fresh flavor.
