  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter (optional, reduces foaming)
  • A pinch of salt


  • First of all, sterilize your jars and lids in boiling water for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Then take a heavy-bottomed pot and combine blackberries and sugar. Let them sit for about 10 minutes to allow juices to release.
  • After that, add the lemon juice, butter, and a pinch of salt.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high flame, and stir it constantly so that the sugar may dissolve.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat slightly and continue to boil for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently, until the jam has thickened.
  • To test the jam’s readiness, place a spoonful on a cold plate and put it in the freezer for a minute. If the jam wrinkles when you push it, it's done.
  • Remove from heat and carefully ladle the hot jam into the sterilized jars, leaving a 1/4 inch of headspace.
  • Seal the jars while they are hot, and allow them to cool to room temperature. Store in a cool, dark place.

Here Are Some Delightful Serving Suggestions for Homemade Blackberry Jam


On Toasted Bread: Nothing beats the simplicity of a generous layer of blackberry jam spread over freshly toasted bread. Add a pat of butter for some creaminess.

Layered in Parfaits: Create alternating layers of Greek yogurt, granola, and blackberry jam in a glass for a delicious and visually appealing breakfast or snack.

Pancake/Waffle Topping: Instead of traditional syrup, use the jam to top off a stack of fluffy pancakes or crispy waffles. Throw in some fresh blackberries for an added touch.

In Desserts: Use the jam as a filling for cakes, tarts, or pastries. It also makes an excellent swirl for cheesecakes and brownies.

With Cheese: Pair the jam with cheeses like brie, camembert, or goat cheese. Serve on a cheese board with crackers for a unique and contrasting flavor combination.

Peanut Butter and Jam Sandwich: The classic PB&J gets an upgrade with homemade blackberry jam. Use whole grain bread for a healthy twist.

Dressings & Marinades: Whisk the jam with some balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and seasonings to create a fruity vinaigrette for salads. Or, use as a glaze for grilling meats, especially pork or chicken.

On Ice Cream: Warm up the jam slightly and drizzle over vanilla ice cream for a dessert that’s simple yet mouth-watering.

Oatmeal Mix-in: Stir the jam into a bowl of hot oatmeal, adding a burst of sweetness and flavor to your morning routine.

In Smoothies: For a touch of sweetness and a rich berry flavor, add a tablespoon or two of the jam into your favorite smoothie blend.

Thumbprint Cookies: Make a batch of basic shortbread or butter cookies and press a thumbprint into the center of each before filling with a dollop of blackberry jam.
