Quick Blackberry Jam

I recently made Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars but didn't have any jam to make them with so I made this quick jam. It is super easy to make and tastes like you spent all day over a hot stove. Feel free to add any kind of berries - fresh or frozen (just make sure that you thaw and let the juices drain off if you use frozen berries).

Quick Blackberry Jam

4 cups blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water

Place the blackberries and sugar in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Using a wooden spoon mash up the blackberries and stir constantly until they let out their juices and come to a boil. Continue to cook over medium high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Next mix the cornstarch with the water, add to the blackberries and stir until thickened. Place the jam in a sealable container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
