Easy Black Raspberry Jam--No Sugar, No Pectin

Makes about 4, 8oz jars
  • 3-4 cups of fresh black raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1/4 C Raw Honey (or more to taste)
To make jam:
  1. Place berries and lemon juice into your crock pot.
  2. Cook on HIGH for 1 hour
  3. After the 1 hour, take lid off and mash up your berries.
  4. Add honey and mix
  5. Turn the crock pot down to LOW and cook for 2 more hours with the lid ajar to allow steam to escape. This will help to thicken your jam
  6. After the 2 hours, taste your jam to insure it is sweetend to taste. If not add more honey, in small quantities, until desired sweetness is achieved. Mix well
  7. Place jam into your prepped jars, leaving room at the top for expansion. 
  8. Leave lids off jars until jam has cooled
  9. Once jam is cooled, go ahead and put on the lids and place in freezer. The jam will keep about 1 year in the freezer and about 10 days in the fridge.
