I made yummy blackberry jam. It wasn't perfect. Ideally, it would have been just a bit thicker and contain fewer seeds, but it still tasted good and I am extremely proud of it.
I used blogger Marisa Mclellan's Blackberry Jam recipe. She is the author of the wonderful canning blog, Food In Jars . She has go-to recipes for nearly everything you can think of, as well as some things you'd never dream up.
The only part of her recipe that I didn't follow was the nutmeg part. I didn't have any available, but I think the jam turned out well without it.
If you have ever thought about canning, but are a bit intimidated, don't be! It is easier and requires fewer materials than you might think. There are at least 20 good websites devoted to helping beginners.
Here are a few great beginning resources:
And don't forget to check out youtube. Many canners have posted some fabulous videos that give step by step instructions.
Are you a canner? I'd love if you left me a link to a picture of something you've canned in the comments section or just tell me about it.
