Raspberry Orange Freezer Jam is an easy to make, stovetop jam recipe that is stored in the freezer. No canning skills needed.
I love making freezer jam because it’s a great way to have homemade jam in your house at all times! I’m not a canner. I have zero canning ability. So this recipe for raspberry orange freezer jam is perfect for me. It’s stored in the freezer, so it’s nice to be able to grab a jar of homemade jam and put it in the fridge overnight to use the next morning. And it lasts in the freezer for an entire year. That’s a win!

Raspberry Orange Freezer Jam
- 6 cups raspberries
- 5¼ cups granulated white sugar
- ½ teaspoon finely grated orange zest
- One 1.75-ounce package regular powdered fruit pectin (can sub 6 tablespoons classic powdered fruit pectin)
- ¾ cup water
- 6 ½-pint freezer-safe containers
- In a large bowl, use a potato masher to crush the berries until you have 3 cups of mashed raspberries (discard any extra). In a large bowl, combine the berries, sugar and orange zest. Let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. In a small saucepan, combine the pectin and water. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add to the raspberry mixture, stir about 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is no longer grainy.
- Ladle into half-pint freezer containers, leaving ½-inch headspace. Seal and label. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours or until set. Store up to 3 weeks in the fridge or for up to 1 year in the freezer.
