    A delicious blackberry jam for blackberry season! I love this recipe as one doesn't have to bother processing the jars in a hot water bath.

    Made it healthier. hmm  -  20 Jul 2010


    Sadly this came out quite watery and next time I would use a little less sugar as the fruit is sweet enough. Also when I tried to boil the pectin in water it just clumped together so I would stir it into the fruit mash instead. A good one for avoiding the bath processing thing though.  -  05 Sep 2011
