2 cups raspberry
1 to 2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar or more to taste
1" vanilla bean optional
Heat the raspberry, sugar and lemon juice together in medium low heat and simmer till the raspberry becomes syrupy and thick.
Remove from heat and leave the jam aside till it is cool. Once it is cool put it into a clean jar. The jam stays well in the fridge.
When using the jam use a clean dry spoon.
Our visit to pick raspberries this Summer. The tall bushes are loads of fun, however children should be supervised and taught how to easily remove the raspberries so they don't get hurt by any small thorns.
Pick only berries that are red.
Gently take the berries with fingers and thumb. If it is ripe the berry will come off easily into the hand.
Place the berries slowly into the container and don't over fill the buckets as the berries will get all squished.
Children will love the experience. They will eat the berries they pick more willingly, than when it is store bought.
