Gooseberry-Red Raspberry Freezer Jam

So, I’m a few weeks late on posting the recipe for this freezer jam.  I had a huge crop of berries this year…

…which resulted in 2 Blue Goose Pies (Blueberry-Gooseberry), and enough in the  freezer for two more…

…plus 14 pints of Gooseberry-Red Raspberry freezer jam…not to mention a handful a day just for eating.  Yum!

So, here is the promised recipe:

Gooseberry-Red Raspberry Freezer Jam

  • 4 cups gooseberries, cleaned (no stems or blossoms)
  • 2 cups red raspberries, cleaned
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 T instant pectin

Mix sugar and pectin in a bowl.  Puree berries in a food processor.  Add berries to sugar mixture and stir for 3 minutes.  Spoon into  clean, dry jars.  Add lids, and let sit for 30 minutes, then freeze.  (Note: Some years this gels perfectly, other years it doesn’t…this was one of those years!)  Makes approx. 8 8-oz. jars.


This is a sweet and tart jam that tastes great on whole wheat toast, over ice cream, and especially in Linzer cookies at Christmas!
