If you recall, yesterday I posted my recipe for honey roasted peanut butter which means that of course I had to make my own homemade jam so I could make my pb and j combo complete.

For y-e-a-r-s I’ve been a strict peanut butter and grape jelly kind of gal.  But lately raspberry jam has crept up into my number one spot and has become, well my jam. I make a similar recipe for these oatmeal and coconut raspberry bars and it dawned on me that I could turn it into jam. In my fridge, I had a few pints of fresh raspberries and a lemon. In my pantry I had sugar and fruit pectin. It was fate.

I love that I can make a fresh skillet raspberry jam in minutes with only four ingredients and it requires zero canning.

First add a few of the raspberries into a mesh strainer that is set over a bowl. Then using a spatula, really press them into the mesh strainer. This process works the upper arms so you can consider this a work out.I did.

Next, add more berries and keep smashing. I don’t like an overly seedy jam, so I reserved about a half cup of whole raspberries for a little later. However, for no seeds press all the raspberries through the strainer.

Press and press and press until only the teeny-tiny seeds remain. Don’t forget to scrape the raspberry puree from underneath of the strainer.

I could literally eat this jam with a spoon.

But on toast with honey roasted peanut butter… it’s bonkers.

This is probably the freshest piece of toast you’ll ever taste… the only way to make it even fresher would be if I baked the bread myself. But, that is a total different post in itself.

I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s just no fighting my peanut butter obsession, so I’m going to have to whip out both of these recipes. You know, to yin the yang. Twist my arm šŸ˜‰ LOVE everything you’ve got going on here!!!

    Can you use frozen berries? How would you change the recipe? Thanks!

      Hi Cari Ann! It’s hard for me to say. I would imagine that if you thawed the berries first you could! If you decide to give it a whirl let me know how it works for you šŸ™‚

    Hi Laura,
    Fantastic recipe idea.
    I just picked 10 lbs of raspberries. I ‘ve already made 15 containers of raspberry and peach freezer jam and I took out a lot of the seeds this year. I still have this big pickings to deal with and I like your puree idea. Can I freeze this jam as well?
    Thanks Margaret

      Hi Margaret! I haven’t tried to freeze it, but I don’t see why not.
