Ingredients

  • 2kg Craigie's Raspberries
  • 2kg Sugar

Method

  1. You will need a large size pot to boil the ingredients.
  2. Heat the raspberries on a medium setting in a pot until the juices run.
  3. Bring to the boil for 4/5 mins, stirring all the time.
  4. Add the sugar and bring back to the boil.
  5. Boil until setting point is reached.

Tip: When the mixture has thickened, place a saucer or a small plate in the freezer for 5 minutes or until chilled. Spoon a little mixture onto the plate and leave for a minute. If the mixture wrinkles or feels gel-like, it’s ready!

  1. Carefully spoon mixtures into jars and lid immediately.
  2. Make sure all the jars are sealed and leave to cool.

What is a setting point? This is the temperature at which a liquid changes to a solid or semisolid. It’s useful if you have a sugar thermometer to gauge the temperature – 105°c is the ideal temperature for setting point.
