This is not your conventional blackberry jam recipe. In fact, it’s so easy to make that I was hesitant to even call it a “recipe” at first. But it is so simple and so good that I just had to share!
A conventional blackberry jam recipe (or any jam recipe, for that matter) would require stovetop cooking and sugar. Lots and LOTS of sugar. The ratio of sugar in most jam recipes is typically 1 cup of sugar for every 2 cups of fruit (that’s a LOT!) Plus time. Most jam recipes cannot be made in 5 minutes.
My blackberry jam is a no-cook, no-refined sugar version that takes less than 2 minutes to whip together.
“Clean” Blackberry Jam Recipe Has No Refined Sugar
Instead of the refined sugar called for in conventional jam recipes, I use ultra-healing Manuka honey.
I talk about the amazing healing benefits of Manuka honey in my natural cold remedies article. Unlike refined sugar or refined honey, Manuka honey, actually supports a healthy immune system. It’s a “super” honey with healing benefits for a wide number of conditions including acne, eczema, acid reflux, allergies, sinusitis, sore throats and more.
Manuka honey tastes every bit as sweet as regular honey too, so you won’t be sacrificing flavor by using it.
Blackberry Jam Technique Won’t Work for Every Fruit
Finally, when you read the recipe below and see the one-step technique (which is basically just blending fruit in a mini food processor) for making my blackberry jam you may begin to wonder if the same method could be applied to other fruit jams. Unfortunately, I don’t think so. The blackberries have a unique texture that works, but I don’t think you would get the same results with say strawberries or blueberries.
Also, my jam is not as thick as conventional recipes, but it is definitely spreadable. Best of all, you can spread generously with #NoRegrets =)
With no need to cook and no refined sugar, this has to be the quickest, healthiest and easiest Blackberry Jam recipe ever!
- 1 1/4 cup fresh organic blackberries
- 1 tablespoon manuka honey
- Add the blackberries and manuka honey to a mini food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. That’s it!
