Easy Raspberry-Lime Freezer JamWho knew making jam was so easy??? To be honest canning scares me - boiling bottles, sealing yada, yada, yada...not for me. BUT freezer jam is beyond easy - crush, stir, pour, done. Easy peasy.
Of course, freezer jam can't sit in your pantry because it is not properly sealed but it is great to make small batches of jam - keep a few jars for your family and give away the others to deserving friends!
This jam has not only sweet, delicious raspberries but also a hit of lime zest which adds an amazing citrus zing to the jam.
I made a batch of home-made butter the same day as this jam - OMG when I slathered both on some fresh, warm bread!
Note: I also made a batch with blackberries - you should too!
