Blackberry Jam  

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Its the perfect season for making jams at home. Markets have fresh berries and preparing jams are really easy. Home-made jams are healthy too since we make them without any preservatives or chemicals. Our backyard is basically a hill which has plenty of blackberry bushes. Right now, they are looking glorious with plump, ripe blackberries. My sweet neighbor Arlene gave me the recipe for making this jam and I was so excited it came out really well, I wanted to share it on my blog for all my friends.


  • 3 cups crushed blackberries
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • Direction:

    1. In a pan, cook blackberries, sugar, and lemon juice on high heat for 5 minutes.

    2. Reduce to medium heat and cook an additional 15 minutes.

    3. Skim the foam off and store in a heat-proof container. The jam will thicken as it cools.
