Raspberry Jam Made without Pectin

Making my favorite jam without store bought pectin. Read why here. I am trying MaryJane's ChillOver Powder (gelatin and pectin alternative). Ingredients: "Kanten (agar agar), an odorless powdered sea vegetable with superior gelling qualities ~ a MaryJanesFarm exclusive."

ChillOver Raspberry Jam

4 Cups crushed berries

2 Cups Organic sugar

2 teaspoons ChillOver Powder

1. In a large pot, bring berries and sugar to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar.

2. Sprinkle ChillOver Powder (from a shaker is best) & stir into boiling liquid and boil rapidly for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

3. Remove from heat. Let stand for 10 minutes before filling jars. (This prevents fruit from floating to the top of jar)

4. Process in waterbath canner for 10 minutes.

This definitely sounds better than my pickle recipe (which was a failure). Oh well, you learn by doing, I guess.


PS I mailed your guestbook and it should be there shortly. :)

I've used this recipe before and had to get used to the "spread" consistency. I think I'll give it another whirl this year. Thanks so the post!
