Easy blackberry jam

I got this recipe off pinterest.

Using some more blackberries! This was actually perfect timing because I used the last of my jam last week.

ingredients:

2 cups mashed blackberries

.75 cups sugar

juice of 1/2 a lemon

combine fruit and sugar in container or plastic bag and let the sugar break down the fruit in the fridge for 2-24 hours (mine actually sat for about 36 hours)

When ready to make the jam pour the sugared fruit into a saucepan and bring to a boil.

Let it boil and bubble until it reduces to a syrup-y substance. Stir periodically so it doesn’t burn.

When it reaches 220degrees fahrenheit remove it from the heat. (or when it has reduced down to a jam like consistency)

Add lemon juice and zest and stir.

This jam will keep in the fridge in a sealed jar for a few weeks.

 

SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and so easy!!! this will definitely be a thing for me from now on.
