Blackberry Freezer Jam Recipe

Saturday, July 7, 2012
Here's an easy recipe using freshly picked blackberries, I am so happy I have two types growing this year red and black. What a difference! They hardly make the pot to make the jam they are so sweet! Unfortunately, I didn't get a huge crop this year but still enough to make one batch. The birds love to eat berries too

5 1/4 cups sugar
1 box fruit pectin
3/4 cup water
3 cups blackberries crushed

Measure berries into a large bowl; thoroughly stir in sugar and let stand 10 minutes.

Mix water and pectin in a small saucepan. Bring to a full boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour all mixture into the fruit and continue stirring 3 minutes. Immediately put into prepared containers (freezer jars or cartons that have been scalded), leaving 1/2 inch space at the top. With a damp cloth, wipe any spills from containers. Cover at once with lids. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Store jam in the freezer until ready for use.


  1. Yummy! And how terrific that you used homegrown blackberries to make the jam. Must be very special.

  2. Wow this is so quick and easy. I've never made freezer jam before. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Fresh berries are the best. I always make freezer jam too as canning intimidates me.

  4. I just recently started making freezer jams and love the taste and simplicity of it. I haven't tried it with blackberries though. I'm sure it's delicious esPecially if they're coming from your own garden.

  5. Hi, so nice to grow you own blackberries. Your jam certainly look good. Thanks for sharing the baby plant photos, it look nice.
