makes 4 cups
What you need:
4 cups mashed raspberries (we live for the seeds)
4 cups vanilla sugar (sugar that has been steeped with a vanilla bean)
Juice of 1 lemon
What to do:
In a large heavy bottom pot over high heat add berries. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-high and add sugar. Return to a boil and continue to cook, stirring often, until mixture will form a gel on the back of a cold spoon. Stir in lemon juice and ladle into sterilized jars. Allow to cool completely before covering and refrigerating.
Serving Suggestion: Make Monet's favorite sandwich
Note: This recipe works great for any 1 to 1 ratio of mashed raspberries to sugar.
