They're ripe, and they're free! Another experiment in 100-foot cuisine! They grow wild, we're stewards of the land (that is, we pay the property taxes on it), and they'll just die if I don't pick them, right? Let's make jelly!

Step 1: Ingredients

1-2 quarts of ripe blackberries
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon size packets Stevia in the Raw
3 t. powdered pectin

Compost it!
Can you imagine the vegetable garden when those seeds decided to sprout? I'd have to leave the country.
Nice instructable! I still have tons of blackberries from last year in the freezer. I think I might just make a batch of blackberry jelly! I'm blessed with neighbors that do not care for their yards and the blackberries grow over their fences into my yard. I get more than I can pick every year. Mmmm... Blackberry wine... I should do an Instructable...
Oh, please do the blackberry wine thing! I have about all the jelly I can eat.
did you check the date on the pectin? It needs to be fresh....Ask me how I know! ;-) <br> <br>I'm SO jealous blackberries are SO $$$ here. <br> <br>this (and the rest of your instructables look wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
I did check--yeast has taught me that lesson. I just jostled the jars, and they're set! Yea! Biscuits for breakfast. Thanks for the kind words. <br>
Sorry, I was wrapped up in thoughts of biscuits. Mary T8M, how do you know the pectin has to be fresh?
I've just spread it out and put it in the dehydrator. We'll see if it becomes jerky. I can do the cream cheese tomorrow or the next day, because there are still a lot of berries out there! I love food from the gods!
YUM! I love blackberries. You could probably add the pulp to a cobbler. Or mix it with whipped cream or cream cheese. :)
Cream cheese! Something like those congealed salads... yeah!
Oh, and if you add a little marshmallow fluff to the cream cheese, it's even better!
