Apple & Blackberry Brown Sugar Jam with Grilled Sourdough


  • 1½ cups small diced apples - about 1 ½ apples (reserve ½ cup)
  • 1½ cups halved California Giant blackberries - about 1¼ small containers of blackberries (reserve ½ cup)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon pectin
  • 4 thick slices of sourdough bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened


      • Blend the reserved ½ cup of diced apples and ½ cup of halved California Giant blackberries until smooth.
      • Stir together the brown sugar and pectin.
      • In a large bowl, combine the diced and halved blackberries, blended mixture, and the brown sugar/pectin mixture and stir until well combined.
      • Let marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
      • Pour the marinated fruit mixture into a large sauté pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer over medium heat for approximately 8 minutes or until you can take the wide side of a rubber spatula and run it through the middle and the liquid doesn’t run back together all of the way.
      • Pour the mixture onto a sheet tray lined with a silicone mat and spread evenly. Let cool at room temperature or can cool quicker by placing it in the refrigerator. If not in a hurry, you can just pour the jam in a medium bowl and let chill until not longer warm.
      • Once jam is ready, spread both sides of the sourdough slices with softened butter.
      • Grill both sides until charred lines appear.
      • Remove from grill or grill pan and serve with jam. Can also use with toast, english muffins, or any other pastries!
