It’s a Jammin kinda day…

Happy Labor Day!  Hope ya’ll had a wonderful day off from work.  My kids and I took advantage of the time together and we started decorating the house for Fall with pumpkins, sunflowers, and scarecrows; Oh my!  We also made Raspberry Jam together.

Both of my chicklins love to mash the raspberries…

(sorry no heads…to protect my children’s privacy I try not to post images with their faces. Too many weirdos out there these days…)

It takes about an hour for prep time to clean up to make jam.  I just love the sweet aromas that fill the house while we are jammin. 

Recipe:

4 6oz packages of raspberries

1 tsp of vanilla

2 cups sugar

3 tbsp pectin

Mash the raspberries, mix in vanilla

sprinkle pectin in the Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker, spread evenly

pour in raspberries evenly

push the jam and enter buttons to start

add butter to avoid foaming

when first beep sounds slowly  pour in sugar

when final beep sounds pour jam into heated Ball Mason jars

Seal and let cool

jammm
