Please can anyone give me a recipe for blackberry jam ?

I have some tubs of frozen blackberries, would it be possible to make jam with them and if so do you have a recipe ?. I have jam sugar as well that has added pectin so this should help with it setting . Thank you x.
Should i defrost berries first ? or put them in pan from frozen ?

    it depends on the sugar and water content of the fruit.

    Ranging from the same weight in sugar as the weight of the berries down to half the amount of sugar.

    Pectin, is not always necessary, but does help. Best method is the boil the berries, add in the sugar, then put some on a cold saucer to see if it sets. If it does not, increase the amount of sugar, add a dash of pectin. Repeat.

    Any sugar works. EXTRA – let them thaw out first. If you’re prepared to let them boil a little, to evaporate the water off, you don’t need any addtives of any type, using just plain granulated sugar will work fine. Get plenty of jars to put them in, you can buy special lids to, but normal lids work fine.

    Weigh your fruit and add equal parts sugar and bring to boil. As the fruit heats it will naturally release pectin which will help it set. Bring to heat slowly so as not to burn sugar until juice is flowing from fruit. You can make it on stove top or microwave – takes a bit longer in stove top. When jam is boiling well put a teaspoonful on a saucer and trickle it down plate. If it thickens as it cools it has reached setting point and can be put into jars. If it remains runny it needs further boiling.
    Mix blackberries with other fruits to go further. I recommend straining blackberries as they can be a bit woody.
