Paleo Raspberry Jam

So you’re probably thinking isn’t it a little early for a jam recipe? Well maybe…

I couldn’t wait to share this raspberry jam recipe with you because it’s really awesome.

It’s one of my favorite treats over waffles, as a topping for paleo “ice cream,” and sometimes with almond butter in a paleo tortilla!

The great thing about this jam is it can be made with fresh or frozen berries. And it’s a grand total of three ingredients, so it’s super-easy.

I do have a slightly ulterior motive for putting this recipe out now…

I have another recipe coming up that’s perfect for this jam.

But seriously, it’s so crazy good, you should just make it anyway.

I made it before my boys came home for the holidays because they love raspberry jam.

The first thing they asked me was why was it so bright red? Well that’s because it’s made fresh and that is what real raspberry jam looks like!

Needles to say, every sticky sweet bit was gone when they left, so I had to whip up a fresh batch.

Try it…it’s simple to make and spoon-lickin’ good.

Hope you like it…and thank you berry much. (I know, sometimes I just don’t know when to stop.) :)

    • I just use it as a freezer jam. I haven’t tried it with a water bath. If you do let me know how it goes. I’m pretty sure it would be ok.

    • Hi Lisa, I plan on making a few more jams this summer. Raspberries break down nicely for this recipe. Blackberries and some other berries have stems I the middle and may need to be strained. I think the basic recipe is good, but we will need to adjust for each recipe based on the fruit. Watch for new recipes soon! :)

  1. Hi Marie, this definitely thickens up with the honey and sugars from the fruit. I think you find it is very much like freezer jam. I have frozen mine for a few months at a time with no problems. I hope you like it. :)
