Who makes jam? Oh that would be me....for the first time in my life! And guess what-- it will not be my last because this was Easy Homemade Jam ...like Wham Bam!

Blackberry Jam

Blackberry Jam Recipe
adapted from Allrecipes

4 cups of blackberries
1 cup of sugar
2 TBSP cornstarch
1/4 t. allspice
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. lemon juice



Homemade Blackberry Jam


Start by mashing the blackberries in a pan.
Stir in sugar until juices form.


Recipe: Blackberry Jam

1. Take 1 TBSP of the juice and add it to the cornstarch in another bowl.
2. mix it together and then add it back to the blackberries in the pan. Bring berries to a boil, stirring often, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
3. Place mixture in a bowl and chill in the refrigerator.
4. Once chilled, stir in the lemon juice. 


Now go grab some sourdough bread... and enjoy!

Of course I made this for the very own Get Your Chef on Challenge!

  6. Oh yum yum, Jen! Gah, I would have had to make mine seedless. My little blackberry crisps were so good but I hated the seeds. Although, making them seedless would require a TON of berries! Straining out those seeds would result in much less final product.

    Your jam looks fabulous! You did an awesome job for your first batch ever! :)
