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.

Yummy! And how terrific that you used homegrown blackberries to make the jam. Must be very special.

Fresh berries are the best. I always make freezer jam too as canning intimidates me.

I just recently started making freezer jams and love the taste and simplicity of it. I haven't tried it with blackberries though. I'm sure it's delicious esPecially if they're coming from your own garden.
