Blackberry jam

We went out blackberrying on the weekend and came home with several container loads (probably about 17-18 L approx) so we had a good harvest!
Last night I made some jam which set very well. The recipe I used was:

1.8kg fruit
1.8kg sugar
4 Tbsp lemon juice
Rind and pith/pips of lemon in muslin bag

The jam took about 20 mins to reach setting point and I got 8 jars (about 300mls each).

I've frozen the bulk of the berries for use later on in crumbles, pies, muffins, cakes and ice blocks. Yum!
