Blackberries improve Heart Function.
3 cups blackberries
1 1/4 cup sugar
In a non-reactive pan, mash the blackberries with a potato masher. Add the sugar and heat the contents over medium heat, stirring gently, until the sugar is dissolved. Raise the heat to medium-high and boil the mixture until a drop mounds in a chilled dish.
Pour the jam into a jar and cap the jar tightly. Store in refrigerator. This jam should keep for several weeks.
The origin of the blackberries is not really known, since they profilerate all over the globe. It is likely they were first in Asia, North & South America, and Europe. Greeks and Romans used blackberries in medicine, and American Indians used blackberries for food, medicine, and dye.
