Homemade Blackberry Jam

Chambord is a delicious addition to this Homemade Blackberry Jam, but it’s pricey and you may not have it on hand. Some other options are ruby port, crème de cassis, or you can simply leave it out.

Mash blackberries with a potato masher or fork in a saucepan. Add sugar, Chambord, and lemon juice; bring to a boil over high heat and cook 5 minutes. Lower heat to a simmer and cook jam until thick, 810 minutes more. Off heat, skim foam from top of jam; cool completely. Store jam in refrigerator.


To keep the jam a pretty jewel-tone color, skim the foam off the top. We also found that when you don’t skim the foam, the blackberry flavor isn’t as pronounced.
