Nearly Seedless Blackberry Sage Jam
From Food In Jars by Marissa McClellan
Makes 3 (1 pint) or 6 (½ pint) jars
6 cups seedless blackberry pulp (from 3 quarts/1.7 kg blackberries, mashed through a strainer with the back of a wooden spoon)
4 cups/800 g granulated sugar
15 to 20 fresh sage leaves
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 (3 ounce/85 ml) packet liquid pectin
In a large pot, combine the fruit pulp and sugar and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the sage leaves and lemon zest and juice and stir to combine. Let the mixture continue to boil, stirring frequently to prevent it from bubbling over.
When the mixture appears to have thickened, which should take approximately 20-25 minutes, reduce the heat to a simmer and add the pectin. Return to a boil for 5 minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat and ladle the jam into the prepared jars. Wipe the rims, apply the lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
