I am a lover of all berries. However, I have to say I don’t give blackberries enough attention. Oftentimes when I am grocery shopping or going to the farmer’s market I see and will buy strawberries or blueberries more than blackberries themselves. I used to find the color not as appealing as the luscious reds in strawberries and raspberries themselves.

However, having purchased and grown a blackberry plant a couple summers ago, I came to appreciate blackberries more. There is a sense of mysteriness to them being darker in color. Yet, they are fragile with how soft they are.

It is made gluten-free friendly and with the easiest Homemade Blackberry Jam that will save you money from buying a can in store.
