Blackberry Jam Recipe

So the new area we are living in is quite rural. Lots of open fields, tobacco farms, and deer. I'm not used to it, but I love it so far. The quietness of it all is so relaxing and all I want to do is sit on my porch in my rocking chair everyday. A couple weeks ago Dallin and I went down the street to a farm to pick some blackberries. It was quite the experience. Trying to find the big ones while fighting off june bugs. They don't do anything to you, they're just big and make a loud zipping noise. Uhh I just get the shivers thinking about it. Overall it was a lot of fun. I will face the big bugs to get some fresh fruit :)

Anyways, the day after I decided to make some homemade bread and to go with it we made some homemade blackberry jam. Soooo good. I probably could have eaten the whole loaf by myself. I wanted to share the recipe because I miss sharing recipes that I enjoy on here. Honestly I use the internet ALL of the time for recipes so maybe someone will use this one! 


3 1/2 cups of blackberries(or another type of fruit)
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
dash of vanilla(optional)


Mash the berries in a saucepan with the heat on.

Add the sugar and wait for it to melt and become like a syrup.

Add the cornstarch.

Bring it all to a boil. Make sure you stir so it doesn't stick to the bottom.

Add the cinnamon and stir until it has thickened up. 10-15 mins.

Place in a container and put in the fridge.

So I didn't add the vanilla only because I didn't have any, but for some reason I feel like it would make it taste really good. I'm definitely going to try it next time. I also put my jam in a mason jar with a lid and it did just fine. Try this sometime and I hope you enjoy!

  4. After barely making the playoffs the past two seasons, the Detroit Red Wings are 17-6-6 for 40 points, one off the lead in the Eastern Conference. They’re on pace for 113 points, which would be their best total since 2007-08, when they posted 115 and won the Stanley Cup. They posted 112 in 2008-09 and went NFL Jerseys to Game 7 of the Cup final.
    “This is the best team we’ve had here since probably ’09, and not necessarily point-wise, but direction-wise,” coach Mike Babcock told reporters the other day. “We have more players going in the right direction than we’ve had in a long time. That’s what good teams have. They have internal competition.”
    But here’s a little perspective: The Wings started 15-8-7 for 37 points last season. On the morning NFL Jerseys Store of Dec. 7, 2013, they were four points off the lead in the East. They were new nike nfl jerseys on pace for 101 points. They weren’t as good as they are now, but they wholesale jerseys shop weren’t far off. And they had essentially the same cast jerseys store of characters.So what happened cheap sale jerseys last season? Why did the Wings finish 39-28-15 for 93 points and end up with the last wild-card spot in the East?
