Raspberry Jam

6 c Raspberry pulp
8 1/2 c Sugar
1 pk Fruit pectin

Clean, hull and pulp fruit. Measure into a 6 ot 8 quart saucepan or kettle. Add pectin. Stir thoroughly until dissolved, scraping sides to make sure all the pectin dissolves. (this will take a few minutes). Place pan over high heat. Bring to a boil stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Add premeasured sugar and mix well. Continue stirring and bring to a full rolling boil (a boil that cannot be stirred down). Boil hard for exactly 4 minutes. Excessive foaming can be handled by adding 1/4 teaspoon butter, margarine or cooking oil to the mixture during the boiling process. Stir constanly to avoid scorching. Remove mixture from heat. Skim foam and pour mixture into prepared containers. Seal.
