First Place Blackberry Freezer Jam!

Lori Harbin-Combs


This unique and delicious recipe is one that I found in an old recipe box from an auction! I love to honor the people who lovingly saved their favorite recipes during their lifetime and they sadly get discarded and end up in a public auction. I tweaked it to my personal style and the rest is 1st place history!

How to Make First Place Blackberry Freezer Jam!


  1. In a large saucepan off the stove, mix blackberries and lemon juice. Sift in the pectin while stirring.
  2. Medium simmer for 30 minutes and stir every few minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in corn syrup. Place pan back on heat and gradually stir in sugar. Cook on medium heat 2 -5 minutes, making sure sugar is fully dissolved. Don"t cook any longer or it will be runny.
  4. Place jam into clean jars or other containers and place in fridge or freezer. ( I noticed the jam improved in flavor after the flavors had time to mature for a day or two)
