Blackberry Roasted Plum Preserves

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 4 cups blackberries
  • 2 cups plums, halved, pitted (I used sugar plums)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced


Heat oven to 400 F.
Place halved, pitted plums on baking sheet.
Sprinkle with a tablespoons or two of sugar and roast for 10-15 minutes. This just gives the jam a nice toasted flavor.
Place blackberries, sugar, lemon juice and zest in a large saucepan or dutch oven.
Cook on high heat to a boil. Boil for 2-3 minute and reduce to medium/medium-low heat to cook for an additional 15 minutes or so.
Use a candy thermometer to heat to 220F before removing from heat.
You can test the jam by placing a small amount onto a plate that has been in the freezer for 5+ minutes. It should gel after a couple minutes to the preferred consistency.
Can per canner instructions, if desired.
Cool and enjoy!
