Spiced Blackberry Syrup

Spiced Blackberry Syrup

Awhile back Kirk got me an awesome gift: a Ball® Jar Collection Elite Stainless-Steel 21-Quart Waterbath Canner with Rack and Glass Lid. Which while some might wonder big whoopie…to me, this was just awesome! For canning, it is one of the few ones that are designed for glass top stoves, and it can handle quart jars. The glass lid also makes canning easier, no having to lift it off to see inside.

So it encouraged me to get canning this week, find my canning mojo if you will, and use up the bumper crop of berries on the other side of our fence. Suddenly my love is back, and at this point I have canned 6 different recipes in the past week.

  • 2½ cups granulated sugar
