My paternal grandmother used to can two things that caused considerable trouble for my family. Fresh cherries & fresh raspberries. The trouble was that whenever we visited dad wanted cherries & I wanted raspberries and gramma would only allow one jar to be opened at a time. We took turns every year but we always argued over who's turn it was! :D Gramma's been gone for a lot of years & now so is dad. So basically, I can have all the raspberries I want, IF I could figure out how to make them! ;) I decided to learn how to can and this was my first attempt at a fresh fruit and I can't wait to open one & see if they taste like gramma's or not. I don't see why not, but they don't look quite as dark as hers did. I used the sugar amount noted for light syrup & I canned 3 pint jars. Thanks for sharing this recipe, CountryLady! I'm sure I'll be making it again & again! :)
If using a pressure cooker, then low pressure (5lb) for 1 minute.
So easy and a wonderful way to store your berries! Thanks CountryLady!
