As I mentioned yesterday, we picked 7 cups of Raspberries from a friends house. He wasn't using them and I was anxious to make some jam with them. I have never made Raspberry Jam before. I found this recipe and was anxious to give it a try.
The berries looked so good. And as they cooked down with Sugar, they smelled DEVINE! A couple taste tests and both hubby and I were in heaven!! He even took the spoon when I was done canning the batch up. We were both eager to have some for breakfast the next morning.
But, this is what we found ! In case you can't make it out, I am holding the jar of Raspberry Jam with a fork stuck in it .... the fork is holding the jar of jam :( My conclusion is that I cooked the jam down too long and it is now, in the words of my husband, Raspberry Candy....taffy is probably more accurate! So, I had to microwave it for 15 seconds to get it to a spreadable consistency.
You live and you learn. And now I need to learn what to do with 3 eight ounce jars and 3 four ounce jars of 'Raspberry Taffy'!
