Blackberry Pie Filling for Canning

• Cinnamon/saffron/finely crushed dry fruits of your choice - 1 teaspoon
Nutritional Information: (Amount per serving) Calories: 421, Total Fat: 17.2 g, Cholesterol: 0 mg


➔ Select good quality, firm and ripe berries. (These will have a uniform taste and tartness, if any, which will help you adjust the amount of sugar easily) Rinse them well and set aside.
➔ Extract the lemon juice and keep aside. (You will need this in between when you cannot lose out on time to extract the juice. So keep it ready in the beginning itself)

➔ Mix the clear jel, sugar and cinnamon or any of the other options that you choose, in a saucepan.
➔ Add water to this mixture and stir it well to make it smoother. Stirring continuously will give you the desired consistency for the filling.

➔ Heat this mixture on low flame while stirring it continuously until it begins to boil.
Remove from the heat and mix the berries in this mixture.

➔ Fill it in 7-quart jars, leaving 1½ inches of head space.
➔ Process these fillings in a boiling water canner for 30 minutes at sea level, 35 minutes at 1001 to 3000 feet for 40 minutes at an altitude between 3001 and 6000 feet. Each of these quart fillings will make 8-9-inch pies.

➔ Preserve them in a refrigerator on normal temperature.
➔ If you wish to experiment with these fillings as a crisp supper, you can use one of these quarts and sprinkle dry fruits over it and serve it with vanilla ice cream.

➔ Alternately, if you wish to use these fillings for an interesting dessert, you can make one of these quarts thinner in consistency by adding more water when you are boiling the mixture.
Just make sure you do that before taking it through the boiling water canner process. You can enjoy it by pouring two spoons of this filling over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

➔ When you want to make the pie, remove the quart from the refrigerator ½ hour before your preparations.
Tips to Make the Best Blackberry Pies
• You can cut the upper crust into 6 equal stripes and cover the berries with 3 horizontal and 3 vertical stripes.

• You can poke a fork into these stripes to make the pie look more attractive.

• Once the pie is baked, remove it from the oven and set it to cool before you refrigerate it.
• Serve the pie with some ice cream or whipped cream to make it more interesting.

• You can add lemon zest to the mixture of boiling berries.

• Buttering the pie crust also helps in baking the pie well.
• Don't forget to thaw the berries before you get to making the pie. The best thing about blackberry pies is that one can mix in so many other types of fruits to truly make a mouth-watering treat.

• You can add some vanilla beans or strawberries or blueberries while making the filling.
• Better still just make a 'very berry pie' with every possible berry. You will then have to make sure that you adjust the amount of sugar, because berries tend to be tart.
Here's a tip: berries picked at the peak of the season tend to be the sweetest. A good dessert always completes a dinner with perfection. Make some yummy blackberry pie fillings to fill in some sweetness around, post dinner.
