There are many reasons to love summer, and yet, we keep coming back to the same one: jam.
Just whisper it -- jam -- and try not to become wrapped up in an endless day dream that's ripe with seasonal berries and stone fruits so juicy that they'll drench any accessible sleeves. It's impossible, fresh summer jam is Just. So. Good. Are you making your own batch at home? If you're not, you should be! The process is incredibly simple (really, this is a fuss-free recipe) and can be used with almost any of your favorite fruits. In today's video, Sarah demonstrates her easy method for preparing and canning raspberry jam. Check back later this week for a video that will take you through the entire canning process for start to finish. In the meantime, savor the flavors of summer and whip up some homemade jam today!
