Have you found a punnet of frozen raspberries in your freezer? Then you've come to the right recipe, it's simple and easy and you and your whole family can enjoy this!


  • 470g Frozen or fresh raspberries
  • 360g Granulated sugar or caster sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp lemon juice


  • STEP 1
    Put the 370g raspberries in a medium sized pan at medium heat on the hob and heat gently until they defrost (if your using frozen raspberries) , get softer and juice starts to come out of them. Press the raspberries with the side of your wooden spoon until they break up.
  • STEP 2
    Stir in the sugar and the lemon juice. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves and the mixture kind of gets thicker in the pan.
  • STEP 3
    Bring the mixture to the boil and boil it for 5-6 minutes until the setting point is reached. To test, place 1 teaspoon of the mix onto a saucer and put in the fridge for about 3 minutes. The surface should wrinkle when touched with a finger. If it's still too runny, then boil the mix for another few minutes.
  • STEP 4
    Ladle the jam into a clean jar. Label and store for up to 12 weeks.
  • STEP 5
    Enjoy on a nice fresh scone or some toast, or even in a sandwich!
