For fruits-- X cups of fruit blenderized to suit taste (chunky vs liquid) + X cups of sugar; bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes; fill jars, then boiling water bath for 20 minutes. I don't use pectin-- I prefer a runny, chunky goop.

Funny you mention blackberry.
We just brought up a jar of "Bumble Berry" jam from the cold room. A mix of all dark berries to include blackberry, black current, Saskatoon berry, honey berry, maybe to include some blue berry or raspberry.

I think the standard recipe is close to this.

6 cups mashed berries
7 cups sugar
package of pectin

Cook berries, add sugar, cook a bit, add pectin.
Put in hot jars, seal, process.

The blackberries are in the freezer for now,I will most likely end up using the standard recipe that comes with the pectin.

First I need to set up my space for canning....lol.
