Ingredients
  1. 4 cups blackberry
  2. 3 cups sugar
  3. ½ teaspoon citric acid
Instructions
  1. Wash the blackberries and place them in a 4 quart saucepan.
  2. Add 2 cups of sugar over the top and set aside till the next day. (see note #1 below)
  3. Bring the content to a boil and continue to boil for another 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low.
  5. Add 1 cup of sugar.
  6. Cook for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the berries from sticking to the pan.
  7. Add the citric acid.
  8. By this time the syrup has thickened slightly.
  9. Cook for another 5 minutes on medium heat and turn heat off. (see note #2 below)
♣ Notes
  1. 1. If you find that the blackberries have not released any juices by the next day, add a cup of water.
  2. 2. The way to test if the jam is done, is by placing a tablespoon of the syrup onto a plate, leaving it to cool. You’ll notice it has thickened further as it cooled.
