  • Rinse 7 clean freezer containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly.
  • Cook blackberries and sugar in large saucepan on medium-low heat until sugar dissolves and blackberries release their juices, stirring occasionally while being careful to not crush the berries. Bring to boil on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 5 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  • Mix water and pectin in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling and stirring 1 min. Add to blackberry mixture; cook and stir 2 min. or until completely blended.
  • Ladle berry mixture immediately into prepared containers, filling to within 1/2 inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until completely set. (To ensure berries are evenly distributed evenly throughout the preserves, gently turn the containers over every 15 min. for the first hour or until mixture thickens enough to keep the berries in suspension.) Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 1 year. (If frozen, thaw in refrigerator before using.)

Special Equipment Needed

Tips for Success

Do not reduce the sugar in recipe or use sugar substitutes in recipe since that will result in set failures.

Cooking Know-How

Use firm ripe fruit for best flavor and results.

Make it Easy

Substitute 2 pkg. (16 oz. each) thawed frozen unsweetened blackberries for the fresh blackberries. Combine thawed berries and sugar as directed. Bring to boil on medium-high heat, reducing the 5-min. boiling time to 1 min. Continue as directed.
