Blackberry Jam

I’m not sure what it is about Blackberry Jam, but I can’t seem to get enough of it. Maybe it’s the sweet and tart flavor that’s so addicting. Or maybe it’s the fact that it’s so versatile and can be used on toast, with yogurt, or even as a glaze for pork chops. No matter what the reason, I just can’t get enough of this tasty jam!

What Ingredients Are Needed To Make This Jam?

How Do You Make Blackberry Jam?

  1. Place the berries in a large stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Bring to a full boil over high heat, mashing the berries with a potato masher as they cook. 
  2. Add the lemon juice and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring and mashing constantly.
  3. Add the sugar and return the mixture to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until it begins to look syrupy and thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
  4.  Remove from the heat and test for doneness: a candy thermometer should register 220 degrees F and the mixture should coat the back of a spoon. Run a finger–or a clean object about the width of a finger–through the coat of jam. If the jam does not run and fill the gap, it is done. Otherwise, return the pan to the heat for another 1 to 2 minutes and test again. Be careful not to let the mixture get too thick–it will thicken as it cools.
  5. When the jam is done, transfer it to a heat proof jar and cool to room temperature, about 2 hours. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate. The jam will last for up to 2 weeks.
