Recipe Notes

*Make sure to fill your mason jars up to the top and secure lids tightly or they will not "pop". If the jars do not seal correctly, you can still store in your refrigerator for later use!

**If you desire to use a hot water bath at the end to get the jars to "pop" that works great as well! Simply place jars in a boiling pot of water for 10 minutes. When you set them out to cool down afterwards, you should hear the "popping" sound as they seal!

One thought on “Blackberry Jam!

  1. Please use safe canning recipes if you’re going to post this publicly. There is a specific head space required, and by food safety standards it needs to be processed. Please don’t set people up for failure. If you post the proper procedure, and someone dosen’t follow it, then it’s on them not you. Just because you sealed them tightly, dosen’t make them shelf stable. I would hate to see someone get sick from your instructions or any liability fall back onto you.
