Blackberry Freezer Jam Recipe

Here's an easy recipe using freshly picked blackberries, I am so happy I have two types growing this year red and black. What a difference! They hardly make the pot to make the jam they are so sweet!
A baby plant yet our first year but lots of berries on this bush!

3 cups blackberries crushed
5 1/4 cups sugar
1 box fruit pectin
3/4 cup water

Measure berries into large bowl; thoroughly stir in sugar and let stand 10 minutes.

Mix water and pectin in small saucepan. Bring to a full boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour all mixture into fruit and continue stirring 3 minutes. Immediately put into prepared containers (freezer jars or cartons that have been scalded), leaving 1/2 inch space at top. With a damp cloth, wipe any spills from containers. Cover at once with lids. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Store jam in freezer until ready for use.
