This recipe relies on a 3:1 jam sugar ratio, yielding a less sweet and more fruit-forward jam. 

The slightly tart, intensely-scented lavender flowers contain essential oils that have a gentle calming effect on both nerves and a stressed stomach.

Rinse a large jar or mixed-size jars (for a total of 900 ml)(approximately 30 ounces total capacity) together with matching lids in boiling water and leave upside down to drain on a kitchen towel. Gently rinse blackberries in a strainer and drain.

Fold in lavender flowers, return to a boil and immediately pour into prepared jars. Close lids, invert jars, and let stand for 5 minutes upside down. Turn jars over again and allow to cool. (The spread stores well sealed and refrigerated for about 6 months.)
