We have a good crop of raspberries this year. I have made two batches of raspberry jam. It is VERY easy.
Take clean raspberries, measure the quantity and put them in a larger saucepan than you think you will need. (When boiling the jam doubles in size.)
Bring the raspberries to a rolling boil, mashing them with a potato masher while they heat. Boil for 2 minutes.
Add an equivalent amount of sugar (I put in slightly less), stir well and bring this mixture to a boil and boil for 2 more minutes.
Allow to cool a bit then pour into sterilized jars.
