  Raspberries are my second favorite of berries, right after strawberries. I boght a few bushes 3-4 years ago, and this year is the first they actually bear fruit well. I´m so excited!


A perfect piece of nature.

Here is my dinner from the other day. There were still some strawberries left in the garden, and I found wild blueberries in our back yard. In they all went along with some sunflower seeds and honey.

  I always prefer eating raspberries raw when in season, but now that I have an abundance of them, I think I will make some simple jam of them too for winter. I use the same recipe for all kinds of jams. Simple and savoury.

The recipe:
1 kg (approx. 2 liters) berries
1/2 dl water
1/2 kg jam sugar (which is 98 percent sugar and some pectin in it)

+  Place the berries and water in a kettle and bring to a boil. Add the sugar and let simmer for 10-15 min. Let cool and scoop into jars.
  I like to freeze my jams for winter. That way they won´t spoil for sure.


  1. Raspberries are my favorite berry. Your dinner looks delicious. I also wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for two blog awards!

  2. Aren´t you kind!
    I would like to post even more frequently, but having a small baby just takes so much time. But as she grows I will have more time for blogging again.
    Happy days!
