Tasty Tuesdays

Today's recipe is for my all time favorite thing to eat, homemade raspberry freezer jam.  Now I have to tell you that I am a bit of a snob when it comes to jams.  I have tried tons of different brands in my quest to find one as good as my mom's freezer jam.  I have even sampled the same jam that the Queen of England likes, but none hold a candle to this fantastic jam.  You can make this jam at home in about 45 minutes and then freeze it for up to a year.  I have one jam making day a year, and make enough jam for my family, and to give as gifts to my friends and neighbors.


4 cups of mashed fruit (5 pints of raspberries)
1 cup of sugar
1 medium lemon
1 packet of pectin for freezer jam


1.  Rinse and drain 5 pints of raspberries in a large bowl.
2.  Using a potato masher, smash the berries until there are no longer large chunks.
3.  In a separate bowl, stir together sugar and fruit pectin.
4.  Squeeze the lemon into a bowl, remove all seeds.
5.  Add the lemon and pectin/sugar mixture to the bowl with the smashed berries and stir for 3 minutes.
6.  Ladle the jam into jam jars, let sit for 30 minutes.
7.  Freeze, or eat your jam.

Tasty Tuesdays

While I was in Utah a few weeks ago we had a family dinner.  My sister Shayna brought this amazing rainbow fruit salad.  I loved the presentation and can't wait to make one myself for our next bar-b-que.  I think I will use peaches or apricots for the orange section since mandarins aren't in season anymore.  All the kids at the dinner thought it looked so pretty that they couldn't stop eating it.
