The Easiest, Tart Raspberry Jam

 A bright, tart, and delicious raspberry jam with a smidgen of lemon will be the perfect addition to your fridge staples.

This jam is made with either fresh or frozen raspberries, and the other ingredients you're sure to have on hand. It comes together in a jiffy. Making jam has never been easier.

There are so many ways to use a good, fresh, homemade jam. Knowing how to make jam is a very key skill to know and keep in your back pocket. It's easy, simple, and quick. I promise that this is easier than you think, and it's cheaper than grabbing a jar from the store. 

This jam can be used on toast, in recipes, on an ice cream sundae, atop French toast, a part of your next charcuterie board, and most certainly in this Almond Sourdough Cake with Chocolate French Buttercream.

Ingredients You'll Need for Homemade Raspberry Jam:

- Raspberries (fresh or frozen)

- Sugar

- Lemon Zest & Juice

- Citric Acid: this ingredient helps to add an extra tart zing to the jam that the lemon juice doesn't quite bring

How to Make This Tart Raspberry Jam Recipe:

- Combine the ingredients in a saucepan

- Stir to incorporate and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.

- Simmer until the fruit has broken down, about 5-10 minutes.

- Cook until the jam has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon and has reached your desired consistency. The jam will thicken some as it cools. 

- Remove from the heat, let cool, transfer to a mason jar or airtight container, store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
