Our new home came with a surprise- blackberries! They’ve finally started to ripen, so I picked every berry I could. While I’d normally save small batches to eat fresh, add to cereal, etc., we are headed up north for a wedding. Not wanting to lose the berries, I decided to make a small batch of jam. My recipe is below can be easily modified for the amount of berries you have (use half the sugar as amount of fruit).

1 1/2 cup of berries (crushed)

3/4 cup of sugar

1 1/2 tbs lemon juice

Add ingredients to large, non-reactive pan. Blend ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil until mixture is greatly reduced and thick (about 5-10 minutes depending on the heat of your stove). Spoon into prepared jars and process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
