Blackberry-Orange Conserve

  • Calories per serving: 88

Dark and mysterious, this soft, beautiful mixture could be used as a base under tarts and custard desserts. Or spoon it right out of the jar onto breakfast pancakes or after-theater crepes. The apples and orange peels add pectin, shortening the time the conserve takes to set. Still, it will take about a half hour.

  1. Heat four 1-cup jars and lids.
  2. In a large pot, combine sugar, water or apple juice, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add apple, orange, and raisins. Reduce heat and boil gently for 7 minutes.
  3. Add blackberries, increase heat to high, and return to a boil. Boil hard, stirring constantly for 15–20 minutes, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and test for set.
  4. Skim and discard any foam. Fill hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Top with lids. Process jars at a full rolling boil for 15 minutes.
