Pre-Baby Hot Pepper Raspberry Jam

Dear Miss Eleanor,
Before you were born, we had a nice long pre-baby weekend.
We made big breakfasts, ate doughnuts, went to farmer's market, and planted bulbs. 
The day before you were born, I looked like this:

And I made this jam with the last of the fall fruit:

Hot Pepper Raspberry Jam

 4 c. raspberries
1 large red bell pepper
4 jalapeƱos
8 c. sugar
Put all your fruit and crushed berries in a pot with a heavy bottom.
 Bring to a boil.
 Add all your sugar at once.
 Return to a boil for one solid minute.
 Ladle into hot jars and process for 10 minutes.
Someday, baby girl, I'll let you try this stuff.  It's great with soft cheese and crackers.
<3 Mom
