Berry picking and Blackberry Freezer Jam Recipe

Blackberry Freezer Jam

1 1/2 quarts blackberries

Wash blackberries and measure out 1 1/2 quarts (about 6 cups) of blackberries and mash with sugar in a large bowl. Let sit 15 minutes at least. Bring water and pectin to a boil, boil 1 minute while stirring. Add pectin to the berries and mix for 3 minutes. Divide into containers and let sit out on the counter over night, then freeze.
