Fun Project--Strawberry and Raspberry Jam

Are you looking for something to do with your children this summer? Let makes fresh fruit jam/jelly. You will spend some quality time with your kids, and also save money as the same time. It is easy, fast and fun to do.

Gather Your Fruits

  • 2 quart of fresh strawberry
  • 2 quart of fresh raspberry

Prepare Your Fruits
  • Wash and quartered your strawberries, and mash them in a bowl. If you still want pieces of strawberries in your jam/jelly, then keep them coarse, not fine!
  • Wash your raspberry and mash them in the bowl. If you don't want to have lots of seeds, then run the raspberry through a strainer.

You Will Need
  • 2 boxes of Natural Gel, no sugar needed fruit pectin. You can control the amount of sugar needed if your strawberry or raspberry are on the sour side. I used 1 cup of sugar for the strawberry, and two cups of sugar for the raspberry.
  • One box of pectin for each.
  • 3/4 Cup of water for each jam/jelly

Now You Are Ready

  • Bring water to a boil, and dissolve Natural Gel Fruit Pectin
  • Add to your mashed strawberry mixture/raspberry mixture
  • Stir them up
  • Pour them in containers or jars

Repeat the same steps above for the raspberry. Let your jam/jell cool, and then refrigerator them. It can be kept in freezer for up to 6 months.

Enjoy summer bountiful!
