The vibrant red berries glisten under the warm light as you carefully prepare to preserve their goodness through canning. Today, you will be creating a delightful raspberry sauce that can be enjoyed all year round.

The process begins with meticulously cleaning and sorting through the raspberries, ensuring only the juiciest and ripest ones make it into your sauce. This attention to detail shines through in the final product, with each spoonful bursting with the pure essence of summer. Once the raspberries are ready, it’s time to gather the rest of the ingredients, like sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. These simple additions elevate the already exquisite flavor of the berries, creating a harmonious balance of sweetness and tartness.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  2. In a large saucepan, combine the raspberries, sugar, lemon juice, and salt. Stir well to fully incorporate the ingredients.
  3. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. While the sauce is simmering, prepare your canning jars by sterilizing them in boiling water for a few minutes.

  7. Wipe any spills from the jar rims, place the lids on top, and gently tighten the bands.
