How to Make Vegan Blackberry Jam?
*Please read detailed and printable recipe card below for full ingredients and instructions.
Prep your Blackberries and Make your Jam
- Add blackberries to a pot and stir until liquid starts to release. Use an immersion blender to blend your berries into a puree. (Photos 1 & 2)
- Add agave nectar, lime juice, and sea moss gel. Stir until it starts to thicken. Use on top with some walnut butter and spelt bread or store for later use. (Photos 3 & 4)
Substitution, Cook, and Storage Tips:
- You can use any recommended berries. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or even a mixture of berries! I recommend using local berries when they are in season as they have the most nutrients and flavor! Frozen berries will work as well.
- If you don’t have access to obtain sea moss, you can omit it. Sea moss gel allows the jam to ‘gel’ and thicken. However, the pectin naturally occurring in blackberries is pretty high and can accomplish a similar effect. It won't be as thick but will still create a spreadable jam just thinner.
- When storing your jam, make sure your lid is closed tight on your mason jar. It will keep in the fridge for 1 week and in the freezer for 2 months. Be sure to date it. DO NOT store at room temperature.
How Does This Recipe Help With Vegan Weight Gain?
So this jam along won't contribute to weight gain but when paired with Dr. Sebi recommended pancakes or nut butter sandwiches it can make for a tasty weight gain recipe!
How Does This Recipe Help With Vegan Weight Loss?
To make this more weight loss (waste/weight release friendly) you could:
- Lower the portion serving.
- Omit the agave nectar for a more “tart” natural blackberry jam.

Additional Sea Moss Information
"Alkaline" Blackberry Jam Recipe
- 3 six ounce package fresh blackberries note 1
- 3 tablespoons agave nectar note 2
- 1 tablespoon squeezed key lime juice
- ¼ cup sea moss gel + 2 tablespoons additional note 3
- Rinse your blackberries. Then grab a medium-size pot and add your berries over medium-high heat. Stir your blackberries until liquid from the berries starts to release.
- Next add your agave nectar, key lime juice, and sea moss gel. Stir until your jam starts to thicken or for 1 to 2 minutes over medium-low heat.. The sea moss gel will thicken the jam pretty quick.
- Remove from heat and allow it to cool for 15 minutes.
- Use on toast, pancakes, waffles (or whatever else you would normally use jam on).
- If not using immediately, transfer into a clean sterile mason jar. Make sure the lid closed tightly. Store in the refrigerator for 5 - 7 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
- BLACKBERRIES. You can use any recommended berries. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or even a mixture of berries! Feel free to get creative! Frozen berries will also work with this recipe.
- AGAVE NECTAR. The amount of sweeter you add will be based on how sweet you like your jam. Taste and adjust as you go. If you are not on a strict Dr. Sebi diet you can use whatever sweetner you personally desire.
- SEA MOSS. This recipe requires you to make sea moss gel first. Please read How to Make Sea Moss Gel or How to Make Irish Moss Gel for more information. Or you can purchased prepared sea moss from Goddess Nectars. If you don’t have access to obtain sea moss, you can omit it or use chia seeds if you don't follow a strict Dr. Sebi Diet. You can lessen the amount of sea moss gel and only use ¼ cup for a thinner jam.
