AHi! A costumer of mine wants a raspberry jam or preserve for the filling. Is there a recipe for that or do you use the jam straight off the shelf of a grocery store? Never did a fruit before!

AOh, and seedless too!

I would use Smucker's. They make a good seedless one. Read the label though because they also make one WITH seeds!  You can fold the jam into some of your buttercream for the filling too.

What is the cost compared to Smuckers? Can you freeze it? I just got a chest freezer so I am trying to make things in bulk now.

AThank you! It's just for a little 8 in birthday cake so I think I'll buy the smuckers and fold it into my buttercream! That sounds easy and yummy!

I agree with this 100%. It's super easy if you use frozen raspberries and the taste difference between the stuff in a jar and scratch is like night and day.

How do you get rid of the seeds if you use frozen?

ddaigle Posted 4 Aug 2013 , 9:16pm

I only buy the seedless s'berry & r'berry jam.  They only come in one size.  I nuke it for about 30 seconds to get it out of the jar...add a box of the powder raspberry or strawberry jello, stir real good and put in frig over night.    It looks grainy/gritty..but doesn't taste that way.   I have both of these recipes in the recipe section on cc.

Strain it. There will still be some seeds.

yortma Posted 5 Aug 2013 , 2:49am

Try this.  It is all I use.  It is wonderful.  It tastes much better and fresher than raspberry jam, and is a prettier brighter color.  It freezes beautifully too, if you have leftovers

To ddaigle,why do you add the jello powder to the jam? Does it stop it from sliding from between the layers or just for the added flavor?

ddaigle Posted 5 Aug 2013 , 9:59pm

ttaunt...I don't really know why!  LOL....i was given that recipe a long time ago.    It does not stop it from sliding or seeping.   I think it enhances the flavor...gives it more punch.

I used my Smuckers today....YUM. I also found some raspberry chocolate chips at my cake store and put them in a chocolate WASC.

ddaigle Posted 5 Aug 2013 , 10:31pm

Raspberry chocolate chips??????????  Woah! Never heard of it.   Sounds amazing!

BatterUpCake Posted 5 Aug 2013 , 10:36pm

Me either...Must not have been a big seller because they were on clearance. They are amazing in chocolate cake.

janetbakes Posted 5 Aug 2013 , 10:47pm

What did you try from Smuckers, was it Jam or preserves. I cant seem to find seedless preserves

ddaigle Posted 5 Aug 2013 , 10:57pm

I think at Christmas time I saw cherry chocolate chips.   I wish I would've bought some to try.   Maybe they will be back in December.

ttaunt Posted 6 Aug 2013 , 2:35am

Thanks,I will try it soon.

ttaunt Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 2:28am

Do you think you can make a ganache from hersheys kissis?

ddaigle Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 2:36am

ASure you can. I've bought milk chocolate chips instead of the semi sweet you just have to figure out h you just have to figure out how many kisses it takes to make a batch.

ttaunt Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 3:31am

love kisses,will have to try that too

When I read your question I had to look in the fridge at mine. It's the yellow banner on the front "SEEDLESS" that I buy, and you're right it says Jam. Perhaps BatterUpCake found something different in her store.

BatterUpCake Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 9:57am

No, I said Jam.

jlhorton Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 12:04pm

AThe cake boss recipe, have you tried it without the liqueur, I need the for a child's burthday party and can't do that!! Lol!

ttaunt Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 12:35pm

How much buttercream would you add to the jam to fill a cake. Would you mix it half and half?

In the Roland Winbeckler's French Vanilla cake recipe theres a buttercream recipe. He says to add 1/3 of raspberry jam to 2/3 buttercream

janetbakes Posted 7 Aug 2013 , 1:48pm

Sorry I see that doesn't read right. What I mean is 1 part jam to 2 parts buttercream
