I think it was a little sweet. Very easy to make. I think next time I will not add so much sugar.

I have started doing things like canning and making things from scratch. This was my first attempt at jam. It turned out perfect! The directions are very clear and it all went just as the recipe said.

Great recipe! Easy to follow and super results. This is the first year I have been able to make blackberry jam successfully. I showed my 11 year old granddaughter the recipe and worked a set with her also. She will be keeping a copy.
