This past week I picked quite a few blackberries. We have been eating them and still have some left over. They don't keep well and I found I had a container of mush-y berries yesterday. I decided to try and make freezer jam out of it. I was shocked to see that for 3 cups of berries you put in 5 1/4 cups of sugar. Who knew that jam had that much sugar in it? Well, the freezer jam didn't turn out. It didn't gel completely and there are still sugar grains in it. Tyler said it was way too sweet and I have to agree with him. I can't decide if I should freeze it or chuck it. So, for now it is sitting on the counter waiting for me to decide it's fate.
