Blackberry Jam

Summer fruits last for such a short time up here, in the North.  I am not much of a fan of blackberries but felt compelled to buy some B.C. blackberries.  I will never eat them 'out of hand' so thought I would make a jam or sauce so I can use them in recipes this fall and winter.

Blackberry Jam

2 cups washed blackberries
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Boil all together until the mixture thickens.  Ladle in jars and refrigerate.  You could also process in a hot water bath.

  3. I haven't made jam in ages. I use it all the time in yogurt, so I really need to make my own.

  5. The close up photo is so intriguing! Preserving them for later use is brilliant. It is sad that our fruit season is so short.

  8. I love berry jams, especially the ones that have just sugar and a dash of lemon; I would make this as soon as our blackberries (mulberries) ripen!

  9. I love blackberry jam - though my attempts to make some a few weeks ago was 'seeded'! Are yours a seedless variety? Happy jamming

  11. I was planning to go out and get new jars tomorrow... your jam is the best.. they are so pricey here, a pot of jam would be a fortune!!! Lucky you.
