I'm so proud of myself; I've never made a jam before, and this turned out great! I followed the directions, EXCEPT, I added about 1/2 tsp. of rum flavoring. It IS blackberry mojito jam, and you can't make a mojito without some rum! ;-) I don't think that the flavoring made a difference, but I did want to try it. I was rewarded with 2 12 oz. jelly jars, and a neighbor told me I can freeze it, so I'll put 1 jar's worth in the freezer. I really don't wanna share it...LOL Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe, Baking Bad.
This was a really good jam. The mint is a nice twist. I also added a little rum just to make things interesting. Served on English muffins. I'll bet this would be awesome with fresh-baked scones as well. Thanks, Baking Bad. [ Made for the Best of 2012 tag game]
Wonderful! I made blackberry first and was so impressed I made some strawberry too. I also put it in canning jars to keep for later. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
This is so differant and so good, I followed directions using mint from my new aerogarden but instead of removing it cut it up into tiny pieces and left it floating in the jam. Also was a little short on blackberries so added a few frozen raspberries from last years garden. Also made sure to sterilize my jars and they sealed perfectly when the hot jam was added making them safe to store which is a good thing as I got 2 jars out of the recipe. One for me and one to share with a neighbor. This is truly a winning recipe and we enjoye it with our bagel this morning. A new taste sensation we'll be repeating. Made for Spring PAC 2012
