Five Raspberry Tricks and Tips

  1. Raspberries go bad quickly, so plan to process them the day you pick them.  Tupperware’s Fridge Smart containers can buy you a couple of extra days.
  2. When canning or making jam, make sure you have all your equipment ready to go. There’s nothing worse than your jam boiling over because you were in the basement looking for extra lids.
  3. Wipe up any spills immediately.  Hot summer days=fruit flies.
  4. The order of what to do when making raspberry jam can be confusing.  Heat the pot of water to boil, pop your jars in the oven to sterilize, soften your lids, then start your jam.
  5. Boil your jam in a container that holds twice as much as the amount of jam you want to make.  Smaller containers will boil over.
