Organic Blackberry Jam

A lazy Sunday morning begs for waffles topped with homemade sweet jam.  Actually, this recipe is a two-for-one.  Once you make the jam you are supposed to let it firm up to a jam consistency, but if you use it right away while it's still warm you have more of a syrup consistency.

Either way, its delicious!


12 ounces organic fresh blackberries, washed and dried
1/2 cup organic pure cane sugar
2 T arrowroot powder
3 T cold water


Place the blackberries and sugar into a small saucepan over medium low heat.  While the berries are slowly cooking, and the sugar is melting, mix the arrowroot powder with the cold water.

Gently stir the berries; the sugar should be totally dissolved at this point.  Add the arrowroot mixture and stir to combine.

Let the mixture come to a slight boil for 2-3 minutes.  Remove from heat and use right away, or pour into a sterilized glass jar, seal and leave on your counter to firm.  When the jar is cool to the touch refrigerate jam.
