amazing yummy and you can make a profit!
nice blackberry and apple jam which can be sold with a profit. i get apples free of our apple tree and free blackberries off a bush by our house. It only costs me £2 for a big bag of sugar which is enough for this batch. This makes about 7 large jars of jam which i sell out side my house on a stand for £2 each so deducting the cost of the sugar. i make £12 PROFIT from every batch i make! It's farley easy money as everyone loves buying homemade jam!

    carefully pot up the jam into the jars and be carful not to spill it on the outside of the jar. And add the lid while it is still hot. (i use a ladle and ladle it into a funnel so it wont make a mess.) Also as the lid is put on while it is hot the little poppy thing on top of the lid goes in and is air tight while it cools and it will keep for over a year and wont go bad or mouldy.
