It's summer in a bottle! Bonus: In small jars, this signature sweet becomes a memorable party favor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Process blackberries in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.

Step 2

Press blackberry puree through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a medium saucepan, using back of a spoon to squeeze out juice (about 1 1/2 cups). Discard pulp and seeds.

Step 3

Add sugar and remaining ingredients to blackberry juice in pan, and bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Boil, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, and cool slightly (about 30 minutes). Serve warm or at room temperature.

Step 4

*1 (16-oz.) package frozen blackberries, thawed, may be substituted.

Have made and canned this recipe for friends and family and with the exception of one person they all have ADORED and LOVED it. I will continue to use and make this recipe for many years to come. A little time consuming but well worth it!!!

This was delicious...a bit of a pain to strain the seeds from the blackberry juice though. I added only 1/2 tsp of cornstarch because I wanted it to be a bit thinner.
