Blackberry and Apple Jam

August 16, 2010

Last week I went blackberry picking and managed about 2.5 lbs before I was bored/fed up of being scratched bitten etc!!  So I wandered home as I was sans car thanks to all the suspension going on me!!! and decided to use up some of the apples in the fridge to make blackberry and apple jam!



2.5 lbs of blackberries washed

0.5 lbs apples peeled and cored and chopped roughly

3 lbs of jam sugar

lemon juice splodge

1/2 pint of water


I popped all the ingredients in the pan brought to the boil and then simmered for a while to allow the apple to stew,

then boiled like mad until the 223 temp reached and set point!! before jarring up into sterilized jars and leaving to cool


I am really pleased with my jam haul this year and intend blackberry picking again soon to make blackberry wine mmmmmm……
