Honey Sweetened Raspberry Jam – no added pectin
We already welcomed beautiful spring with fresh green leaves,refreshing air, above all tasty and fresh fruits. What a beautiful climate here in Tashkent. Simply loving it!! Season of king of fruits – Mango going on back in India – really missing it. But here we started getting all kind of berries at its best! Yes, sweetest and tastiest berries. Then there is no reason why not every house hold here makes jams and fruits preserves at home itself. Yes I also made Jam with cute little super fruit – Raspberry, sweetened with Honey – without added pectin!
This is my first jam/any fruit preserve I made all by myself in my life ever. Evey year after I came here, hubby’s friends used to send me big jars of Jams made by them at home. I used to think it needs a lot of effort and so much of ingredients to make it. But it was not! I made this tastiest jam with just 3 ingredients and was really amazed to see the result! Very Intense flavor of raspberry and no guilt of having extra 1 spoon because I sweetened it with honey! Zest of lemon gave amazing fragrance and I have no other words – it made me feel so proud myself.
Anything Homemade is the Best! Because we know what all things are going into to it and we will never compromise on quality which we serve to our family. Now I decided one thing, I will never buy fruit Jams from market. I have to try with different fruits as well, when I started getting more summer fruits. I made freezer Jam, I have to learn how to preserve it for next winter as well.
When we bought Raspberry, I told my hubby I am gonna try making Jam with this. His only demand was – No White Sugar. Yes and it worked. I googled and there are a lot of similar recipes. So I gained confidence that Honey will work and made without adding extra Pectin as well. Because Raspberry already has pectin naturally in itself. So all ingredient from nature. No artificial preservatives :).
