This is a glorious holiday variation of my Raspberry & Cardamom Jam recipe published in my quick refrigerator jam article, Jams in a Jiffy.  I’ve featured the popular holiday spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove instead of cardamom – use whatever appeals to you and adjust to your taste. This naturally-sweetened jam is without refined sugar or artificial sweeteners and preservatives.

You can serve this recipe warm or chilled on holiday breads, crackers or spread on top of soft, spreadable cheeses such as Brie. It’s also wonderful topping for vanilla ice cream or frozen dessert. Be sure to refrigerate this recipe and consume with a week or two. No canning or special equipment required.


• 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
• ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
• ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
• ¼ teaspoon ground clove
• 2 to 3 tablespoons apple juice concentrate thawed
• 2 to 3 tablespoons honey or light agave sweetener (to taste)
• 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


1. Rinse raspberries. If using frozen, completely thaw before jamming.

2. Combine raspberries, spices, apple juice concentrate and lemon juice in a large nonstick skillet.
