  1. Yes, I just follow a raspberry jam recipe. Here's a basic one:

    Raspberry Jam
    2 qts. raspberries, washed and drained

    1/3 C. water

    1 t. lemon juice

    1 T. grated lemon peel

    1 package pectin

    6 C. sugar

    Combine raspberries, water, lemon juice, lemon peel and pectin in a large pan. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Add sugar, return to a boil. Boil hard 1 minute. Remove from heat and let set 5 minutes. Spoon off any foam that may be on top.

    Ladle into sterilized jars and process in a water bath for 10 minutes.

    1. I haven't made jam with mulberries, but I do other stuff (bake into sponge cakes, , make mulberry liqueur, make frozen popsicles, etc). I just wanted to say: use them up really quickly. More than a day in the fridge, and I find they always start going mouldy. It's because they bruise and bleed so easily, I think. I've had to throw away too many batches because I put off using them, so please don't make my mistake!

      It's such a short season, so enjoy.

      1. Here is a link to a mulberry jelly recipe with pictures and everything. It saves a lot of time because you don't need to destem the mulberries. If you want some seeds, just save a few and put them in the syrup.
