Blackberry Jam

Today the husband & I went out for a self-indulgent yummy breakfast with two of our very dear friends, Darren & Cherril. These people are gorgeous, the sort that you are just at such ease with, love to be with & who just make you laugh. Luckily for me, they have a multitude of fresh blackberries at their property - & they collected some for me, which of course means, blackberry jam!

Blackberry Jam

1.5 kg fresh blackberries
1.5 kg sugar
Juice of half a lemon
¼ cup water
I packet of pectin (such as Jamsetta)

  1. Combine the berries, water & lemon juice in to a big saucepan.
  2. Heat gently, gradually bringing to a slow boil.
  3. Heat the sugar in a microwave for 2 minutes (usually in 2 batches) & gradually add to the berry mixture: mix in well until dissolved.
  4. Add the pectin: mix in well until dissolved
  5. Pour into sterilised jars & seal well.
