Homemade Blackberry Jam Recipe and How To Can It.

Submitted by

Here is my homemade blackberry jam recipe and instructions on how to can it, also known as storing it or preserving it in a jar for later.

This was my first time canning anything so I am so excited to share it with you.  A friend of mine, Daniella, from KidsFoodAdventure.com gave me a ton of tips on canning one day while waiting for our kids in swim lessons.  To be honest, I was a little intimidated of canning my own food until talking to her.  So, thank you friend for giving me the confidence to just go for it!

I also used my Vitamix to help puree the blackberry preserves before putting it in the jars.  It still has seeds, but the Vitamix really helped make it smooth and yummy.

This recipe made 2 jars.  I’ll attempt to make more later this week after I battle with the birds who have been steeling my berries.

Blackberry Jam Recipe in a Jar

Delicious blackberry jam to enjoy all year long.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Fresh Squished Blackberries
  • 3 Cups Organic Cane Sugar
  • 3 Tsp Fresh Lemon Juice

Instructions

  1. First, sterilize your jars ahead of time in boiling water or run through the sanitize cycle on your dishwasher.
  2. Squish your blackberries to equal 3 Cups. Use a fork or spoon to mash and squish.
  3. Add 3 Cups of Sugar
  4. Add lemon juice
  5. Cook at High Heat for 5 minutes in medium pot on stove.
  6. Puree in your blender (I used my Vitamix) until smooth. Be Careful transferring hot ingredients to and from Vitamix
  7. Put back into pot and cook for 15 minutes.
  8. While boiling hot, put jam into canning jars and cover with towels.
  9. The seal top will pop and seal tight after a little while. When you press on the top of the jar, the middle part of the jar should be sealed tight and not move back and forth. Just press in the center, gently, with your finger. If it pops up and down (often making a popping sound), it is not sealed.
  10. If not, place the jars back into a pot with boiling water to heat up again for about 5 minutes.
  11. Be careful taking the jars out (Use tongs or special canning grabbers) and let them sit on a towel on the counter until the top seals shut.
  12. Wa-la- Blackberry jam that will last in your cupboard for up to 12 months! Yum!

Notes

Be careful when handling hot jam ingredients and make sure your kids are clear of the hot jam pot while transferring to the jars.
