Yes, berries, including blackberries, can be canned in a water solution or juice or syrup. This link: https://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_02/berries_whole.html explains the entire process for canning fruit. They do need to be processed in a boiling water bath and that is explained in the link above as well. Thanks for reaching out!
