This jam is simple and satisfying to make.


  • 1kg raspberries
  • 1kg caster sugar


  • Use castor sugar for more delicate fruits like raspberries, the sugar melts quicker and fruit remains whole.
  • Place the sugar and raspberries into an oven proof bowl and place in a moderate oven for 15 minutes.
  • Pour the sugar and fruit into a pot and slowly bring to the boil, stirring slowly until it reaches setting point, pot and cover in the usual way.
