Ingredents for 3 1/2 pint jars:
24 ounces fresh raspberries
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
6 ounces dark chocolate (Ghirardelli semi-sweet)
- Pick-over but do not wash raspberries. Put them through the finest screen of a food mill to remove the seeds. Combine the puree with sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
- Finely chop the chocolate and stir it into the raspberries off the heat. Scrape the jam into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Assemble dishwasher-clean ½ pint jars and lids with new heat-sealing gaskets.
- Reheat the jam to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Cook for 3 minutes at a simmer, stirring frequently. Off the heat, pour into jars. Attach the lids, screw on caps and invert the jars for 15 seconds. Return, right-side-up to a rack to cool.
