Jennifer Garner definitely knows how to bring the funny to social media.
The mother of three regularly shares funny photos and videos on her Instagram page, proving that she is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities on the planet. Jennifer boasts a following of over 6.6 million on Instagram alone and that figure just seems to climb by the day. In the most recent Instagram post that was shared with her army of followers, Garner gives a tutorial on how to make raspberry preserves.
The cute clip starts off with Garner washing a bowl full of raspberries, noting that she isn’t sure if she’s even supposed to be doing that. She then moves the berries over to the stove. Adding water and some sugar, she reminds fans that if the berries burn, you need to throw them out since you can’t “wake them” from the dead. In between cracking a few more jokes, Jen stirs the pot and tells fans that she decided to try and add blueberries to the mix as well.
Garner then sips coffee and paces as she anxiously waits for her masterpiece to be done. She pauses to tell her followers that her kids don’t really love seeds, so she needs to bust out the strainer and get them out — something she thinks may mess her up. As she puts the pot back on the stove, Garner decides to kill some time by making breakfast tacos, scrambling eggs, and saying that she doesn’t know if she makes them the right way.

A poem: It is easy to make and heaven to serve, summertime tastes like a berry preserve. Kids home from camp with bellies to feed, a wee bit of time is all that you need. Well, plus raspberries.♥️ And sugar helps, too. ???? Annnnnnd this easy recipe from @zoenathanloeb.???? . #HuckleberryCookbook Raspberry Preserves Ingredients: 5 cups fresh raspberries (or you can add blueberries, too! ????????♀️) 1/2 tsp kosher salt 3/4 cup sugar (adjust to taste ????) 2/3 cup water . 1. Combine everything in a medium stainless-steel pot. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until the berries fall apart, about 10 minutes. 2. Uncover and cook down until thickened, stirring frequently to avoid burning, about 25 minutes. (if you have framboise splash a little in for depth of flavor— hi, @inagarten! ♥️) If you do burn it, sadly, there is no saving it. ???? 3. Refrigerate until needed. 4. Yum. ♥️
