Ginger Raspberry Jam
 
3/4th cup of fresh peeled, finely cut ginger
4 cups of mashed raspberry (these were frozen from our farm)
7 cups of sugar
2 TBSP of lemon juice
Pinch of salt
1 package of pectin
 
Add the ginger, fruit, lemon juice and sugar together, stir it though and start it on a slow low heat till it melts all together, then bring it up to a med heat..
 
Cook for 15 to 20 till the ginger is softened..  take off heat.. no boil and hit with a stick blender with care, till all the ginger is fully blended into the mix.
 
Put back on the stove and let sit for one to two min and then skim off 60 to 80 percent of the seeds that will float to the top..
 
Bring it back to a full boil.. add your pectin, stir in and bring to a full roiling  boil for a the one min, check your jam with the chilled plate test and once good to go..
 
Put in prepared hot jars and lids finger tight and into hot water bath for ten min.. This jam does have a lovely hotter undertone with a great fruit over top notes, it color is outstanding..
 
Its good as a jam, or as a filler but its also great as the base of a salad dressing or as a meat glaze, I made a pulled pork with this jam baked into it.. delightful!
Ps, not sure why my words are so small on this one.. strange..
