First remove the stems of your blackberries and wash them by gently rinsing them under a stream of cold water.
Place your clearjel in a large pot along with the sugar. Mix and add water. Simmer on a medium heat until the mixture gets thick and starts to bubble. Add lemon juice and cook for an additional minute. Fold in berries until the mixture is spread evenly.
Fill your jars with the hot mixture leaving 1 inch of headspace. Once ladled in, debubble, and wipe the jars clean. Then seal with your Denali lids and rings.
Place the filled jars in the water bath. The water should be 1-2 inches above the top of the jars once all of them have been added. Bring the water to a rolling boil then start a timer for 30 minutes (adjust based in altitude).
After processing remove your jars with a jar lifter and place the jars on a towel or padded surface to allow them to cool. You should hear a snap or ding as they are cooling when the lid's seal is formed. Test the seal and store away till you're ready to use!
