This is an updated version of my great-grandmother's blackberry jam. This is such a good jam with many uses. Our family always has this for Christmas cookies and as a ice cream (home made) topping. We use it on toast, on cakes, cookie filling, ham glaze, in salad dressing... the possibilities are endless!

This makes a special gift for Christmas, we give it in a basket with other canned items and suggestions on how to serve each item.

Simple, easy, old fashion recipe that reminds all of the generations of a simpler time... and great-grandma!
