- Rinse blackberries under cold water, and then place in a large mixing bowl. Toss with 1/3 cup of maple sugar, cover, and place in the fridge for one hour.
- Remove the blackberries from the fridge, and place in a large sauce pan.
- Heat over medium heat, and mash the berries with a potato masher.
- Once the berries have started to bubble, and are completely mashed and softened, strain through a fine mesh strainer.
- Scoop half of the bits of berries back into the sauce pan, and then pour in the strained black berries. Stir to combine.
- Add the remaining 1/3 cup of maple sugar, as well as the lemon zest and juice, and stir to combine again.
- Heat over medium to medium high heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently until the jam has thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
- Scoop off excess foam (if there is any) from the surface, and ladle the jam into four 4 ounce sterilized mason jars, leaving 1/2 from the top. Follow preferred canning methods if desired, or allow to cool, and then keep in the fridge until use.
