By then, the blackberries are full on and it's tempting to just toss them all together in the freezer, but I don't. We keep the raspberries separate. K1 and I love raspberry jam, so I took all of the raspberries out of the freezer and made jam with the whole lot. It's one of the easiest jams to make and the final product is jewel-like and tastes of hot summer days and sweet rain.
Black Raspberry Jam
- 8-10 cups raspberries, crushed [leave the seeds in]
- 3 T Ball pectin [1 pkg]
- 7 cups sugar
Note: This jam looks just like a lot of other jams. Leaving the seeds in will help you identify which is the black raspberry and which isn't. I make true jelly [no seeds] with the blackberries, regular jam with the black raspberries [with seeds], and jam with the blueberries [tiny seeds]. Remember to label them as soon as the lids are on so you won't confuse them with something else later.
