Summertime is full of tons of great berries: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and let’s not forget blackberries. Blackberry Jam is a great way to have some blackberries all year round.
An 8 oz. jar of blackberry jam usually runs around $3 a jar. With making your own, you not only save money, but you know exactly what is in your jam! You can adjust your sugar levels or choose to use organic berries. You might even decide to get creative and mix them up!
Buy your blackberries when they are in season, and the riper the better. The more ripe your berries the less sugar you have to add to your jam!
