This time the jam is made with of my favorites; Blackberries and Star Anise.



  • 1/2 lb fresh or frozen black berries
  • 1/4 lb sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 whole Star Anise


  1. To make this fantastic jam you just need to start by adding the berries to a medium sized pot.
  2. The berries can both be frozen or fresh.
  3. Now you cook the berries with the little amount of water and the Star Anise for about 20 minutes.
  4. Stir so it doesn’t get burnt.
  5. Next step is to add the sugar, and you now cook until the sugar is dissolved.
  6. Remove the Star Anise – but don’t throw away!
  7. Now you blend the mix with a hand blender in the pot and pour into scalded jars.
  8. On top of each jar of homemade happiness you add one of the previous cooked Star Anise.
  9. Close tightly with the lid.



Keep them in the refrigerator where you can store them for a few month. (IF they last that long, haha!!)

Mainrule: For every pound of fruit use half of the weight in sugar.
