How to Can Blackberry Ice Cream Sundae Topping

Old-fashioned vanilla ice cream with blackberry sundae topping. Between the sweet berry goodness and the creaminess, it is a divine combination.

One of the reasons I like this recipe is that it is surprisingly simple to make. Plus it has the added benefit of having less sugar than any of my jams or syrups. This allows the berry flavor to not be overwhelmed. It is a delicious addition to ice cream, waffles, pancakes, or even French toast.

Blackberry Sundae Topping Recipe Ingredients:

  • 8 cups blackberries

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1/8 tsp vanilla (optional)

  • 1/2 Tsp butter (optional)


This recipe makes approximately 4 half-pints of blackberry sundae topping.

  1. Place all the ingredients except the vanilla in a large pot.

  2. Bring the mixture to a boil.

  3. Simmer until it is your desired thickness. (Remember that it will thicken up as it cools.)

  4. Fill the jars with your topping leaving 1/4-inch headspace.

  5. Remove any air bubbles.

  6. Use a clean damp cloth to wipe the rim of the jar.

  7. Place the lid on top of the jar and add the ring. Tighten the ring to fingertip tight.

  8. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes if at sea level. Remember to adjust your processing time if you are above 1000 feet in elevation. (Start the timer once you are at a rolling boil.)

  9. After 10 minutes, turn off the heat, remove the lid, and allow the jars to cool for 5 minutes.

  10. After cooling, use the jar lifter to remove the jars from the boiling water bath canner. Space the jars about an inch apart on a heat-safe surface for 24 hours to cool and completely seal.

  11. Remove the rings, wash, and label your jars of jam before storing them.

  12. If a jar did not seal, then place it in the refrigerator and use it within the next 3 weeks.

  13. Store the sealed jars in your cool, dark pantry to enjoy for the next 1-3 years. After three years the nutritional value of canned food diminishes. The quality is best during the first year.

Homemade canned goods not only fill your kitchen with a variety of foods not available at your local grocer, but they also bring joy when others enjoy your hard work. This blackberry sundae topping will hopefully become a favorite in your house the way it is in mine.
