Friday delights: Chet Atkins and instant raspberry jam 

Chet Atkins on guitar in the background, 3 ingredients to instant jam, ready for the winter.  

We go through jam way too fast to need to can it properly.  Refrigerator jam is the way to go. 

Fresh fruit, sugar, instant pectin. 

Simple and oh so good and easy. Mix sugar with pectin, add crushed fruit. Ladle into jars. Refrigerate. Follow instructions to make small batches or it won’t settle right. I do reduce the sugar a touch. Strawberry and raspberry combo is magnificent. 

Pile of organic raspberries (in December at Costco no less) at a super duper price. Left over pectin from the summer, perfect quick jamming session in my kitchen listening to Chet Atkins on youtube videos in the background.  guai Fridays.
