Another berry recipe! We have so many berries it is unbelievable, so I have been trying to use them in everything. Saturday morning we even had blackberry pancakes. Today I decided to make some jam with some of the blackberries. The kids were really excited for it. We usually don’t use jam or jelly just because it has so much sugar in it, but I couldn’t resist since we have such sweet fresh berries. I don’t have a canner, so I only made enough for one jar. You can use this same method to make jam with any berries that you like. It will last in the fridge for about a week, but I don’t think our jam will make it that long. I can’t wait for toast in the morning!
about 2 cups of fresh berries mashed
1 cup of sugar
Combine the berries and the sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook them on high heat for about 5 minutes and then turn down the heat to medium. Cook the jam for another 15 minutes stirring frequently. Remove it from the heat and let it cool a little. Carefully spoon it into a jar or heat proof container and let cool completely. Refrigerate or freeze.
