Seedless Blackberry Preserves Recipe

My backyard berry plants have done exceptionally well this summer, especially the black berries. We were able to keep up fairly well with the blueberries and raspberries but the black berries are getting out of hand; so I am preserving what I can. We use a lot of wine for cooking; some of them are going into making blackberry wine, some are being frozen, and some made into preserves to use in recipes, on ice cream, toast, or anything else we can use blackberry preserves on. This Seedless Blackberry Preserves Recipe is a simple basic recipe but does require some time to prepare the berries. I used a juicer to remove the seeds and create a blackberry puree to make the Blackberry Preserves. If you don’t have a machine to do this task, run the berries through a sieve if you want to remove the seeds.


7 cups berry puree

7 cups sugar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 box of sure jell (1.75 ounces)


1. Place empty jars in a canner with lids. Bring to a boil. Shut off the heat and let stand in the hot water to sterilize until needed.

2. In a large pan combine the blackberry puree, sugar, lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Stir in the sure jell and bring to a rolling boil for 2 minutes. (Be sure to use a large enough pan so mixture doesn’t boil over)

4. Remove the canning jars from the hot water and pour the berry mixture into the jars to about 1/2 inch from the top.

  3. Thank you.

  4. About how many blackberries does it take to make 7 cups of puree? Thanks!

  5. We had so many I didn’t really measure the amount of berries, but this is how it should come out.
    this was taken from:
    1 CUP RASPBERRIES OR BLACKBERRIES equals approximately 1/2 cup puree.

  6. If you don’t mind me asking. Where did you get those very cute ball jars ? Thank you so much. God bless!

  7. I don’t remember I have had them for over 20 years.
    Sorry I cant be more help.
