Super Easy Raspberry Freezer Jam

If you have never tried freezer jam, you really should. It is super easy to make and tastes 100 times better than store bought jams. If you have raspberries or strawberries in your  garden you must make this freezer jam. You can either keep in the fridge or freezer. I like to put it on my toast right from the freezer but it is easier to spread if you store in fridge.
3 -4 glass or plastic jars with tight fitting lids
4 cups finely chopped fruit (all fruit must be finely chopped, then measured - do not purée)
1 ½ cups (375 mL) granulated sugar
1 pkg (45 g) Club House Garden Fare* No Cook Freezer Jam gelling powder

Place chopped fruit in large mixing bowl.
Gently stir in sugar and allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Slowly sprinkle Garden Fare No Cook Freezer Jam gelling powder a little at a time onto fruit mixture while stirring for 3 minutes.
Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Gently stir again for 1 minute.
Pour jam into jars, leaving 1 inch head space. Seal tightly. Jam is ready to eat. No standing time is required.
Store in refrigerator and use within 6 weeks or store in freezer for up to one year.
