  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice


  • First, place the sugar in a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave on high 2 minutes or until the sugar is warm.
  • Stir in the blackberries. Cover with plastic wrap or wax paper, but fold back one edge so the steam can escape. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes, remove and stir and microwave again for another 1 1/2 minutes or until the sugar dissolves.
  • Uncover and microwave on high 8-10 minutes more or until the berries are very soft and the liquid reduces and thickens slightly.
  • Stir in lemon juice. Cool, cover and chill in the refrigerator overnight. The jam will continue to thicken as it chills.
  • Store in your refrigerator for up to 1 week. Enjoy!
