Lots of wild blackberries

susanl143 | Aug 8, 2014 09:53 AM

It's been a banner year on my farm. I just picked about 8 cups of perfectly ripe wild blackberries. Now I need to do something with them before they spoil. I am gluten free so things like cobblers and such are out for me. I'm thinking jam and brandy but I lack equipment and experience. I'll head to the store if the recipe sounds yummy enough. Years ago, I let a professional jam maker harvest my crop of berries and she made Wild Blackberry Jam with Brandy. She gave me a bunch of jars in exchange for the berries and it was yummy. She also sold out quickly.I was thinking of making that if you can come up with a way to sterilize the jars and avoid botulism without investing in a canning kit. I've got a lot more berries coming along which will be ripening later so I really could use some help with enjoying and preserving the riches here.
