Sugar in blackberry jam

Asked August 31, 2018, 3:20 PM EDT

How much sugar do I need in making blackberry jam. My recipes call for 7 cups sugar to 4 cups berries. That seems like a lot!

There are different pectins for making reduced or low-sugar jams, as well as no-sugar jams. Look for a pectin that is made for reduced, low or no-sugar jam and follow the instructions with the pectin.
