Step 1: Buy pectin. This one is my favorite, the directions are on the back and it uses less sugar than any other recipe I've seen, 4 cups fruit to 1 & 1/2 cups sugar.
Step 2: Wash fruit. In this case, we are making golden raspberry jam.
Step 3: Smash fruit. This is the best smasher ever! I don't think they make these anymore.
Very kid friendly part.
Step 4: Mix pectin, sugar and fruit together. If you don't want seeds, push raspberries through mesh strainer before you measure and mix.
Step 4: Label, bottle and freeze. Done!
Now you have jam to last you until next year.
