This is an excellent jame -- the lime juice adds a tartness and enhances the blackberry taste. The consistency is good too. Our limes (we have a tree at home) are larger and more juicy than those at the store,but still used the 3 recommended ones and it worked fine (I used a generous 6 cups of berries).

This will be part of our Christmas baskets we send family & friends this year!
