Late Raspberry Jam by Ghillie James – makes about 1.5kg and keeps for at least a year.

Ingredients:

1.2kg raspberries

Juice of two leamons

1kg of jam sugar

Method:

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and stir. Leave the mixture to macerate for 2 hours, which will give the fruit time to release its juices.

Transfer to a pan and stir over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved, then raise the heat to bring to a rolling boil and cook for 5 – 10 minutes until the jam reaches setting point.

Transfer the jam to warm sterilised jars and seal.
