- 1 lb of blackberries, 1 lb of sugar, juice of 1 lemon. Combined for 1.5 hours, then cooked for about 45 min's--enough to coat the back of a spoon. Set beautifully. Yielded 3 1/2 pint jars.
- Ball Original Fruit Pectin recipe - Crushed 5 cups crushed berries, added 1 package of pectin, brought to a hard boil. Added 7 cups of sugar and returned to hard boil for a couple of minutes. Yielded 9 1/2 pint jars.
Was easier than I thought. Sort of like brewing beer: keep everything clean and stir, stir, stir.
Both recipes made a preserve that set beautifully. Next, rhubarb!
