  • 1.75 ounce box regular pectin
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar + more for coating
  • 1 cup seedless raspberry jam


  • Prep: First, line a 9x13 pan or quarters baker sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the pectin, baking soda and water, stir and set aside.
  • Boil & chill: Next, in a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and raspberry jam and begin cooking on medium heat. After that, microwave the pectin mixture for 30 seconds. Stir and return to the microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Once the jam mixture begins to boil, microwave the pectin mixture once more, for 20-30 seconds until it begins to boil as well. Proceed to stir the pectin mixture into the jam mixture in the saucepan. Continue to heat and bring to a full, rolling boil and boil for 3 minutes. Then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Set the pan in a cool, dry place where the candy can be undisturbed. Let it sit for a full 2 days.
  • Assemble: Once the candy has set, proceed to sprinkle the top with about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, or a mixture of 3/4 coarse sugar and 1/4 powdered sugar. Make sure the sugar covers the entire surface of candy.
  • Proceed to gently turn the candy over onto another piece of parchment paper(some sugar will fall off- this is OK). Peel the parchment off the underside of the candy and sprinkle that side with additional sugar. Let the candy sit for another several hours (2-3 preferably). When ready to enjoy, cut the candy into small squares, sprinkling with additional sugar as needed and enjoy!
