Raspberry Mint Jam

As anyone who has mint in their garden knows, it grows like a weed! Luckily, I like mint tea. I also like, love raspberries.  So when I was testing recipes for the Prairie Fruit Cookbook, I added a little mint tea while I was making raspberry jam.  Wow, what a fabulous combination.  If you want to add another dimension to your raspberry jam, check out this recipe from my book.
