The other day my friend Sarah tweeted about some scones and blackberry jam she was eating.


I tweeted her back and basically told her that she needed to email me the recipe in the next five seconds or else our ten years of friendship would go down the drain.

Just kidding. I didn’t tell her that.

I didn’t have to. She emailed her recipe to me within five seconds.


I then told her that I was stealing her recipe (it’s so easy you can barely call it that) and putting it on my blog.

I’m such a good friend, right?


Oh heavens, you can’t believe how good this is until you make it. It’s especially good with oatmeal scones. If you have five spare minutes today – you must make this. MUST, I tell you.

Otherwise, our internet friendship is over.

Easy Blackberry Jam

  • 1 small carton of blackberries
  • 1 T sugar (or agave, or honey or whatever)
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon

Put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and turn the heat on medium. Once those blackberry juices start flowing, squish it all up with a potato masher or a fork.

Let the mess simmer for about 5 minutes then remove from the heat until it’s thickened and looks sort of like jam.


Thank you Sarah Fred…I love you.
