Blackberry Peach Preserves

Recently, blackberries were .88 a carton, so naturally I grabbed as many as my hands could hold.  We’ve been eating them with yogurt, oatmeal, fresh out of the carton… we were blackberried out… but we still had a few left that I didn’t want to go to waste.  I checked my freezer and noticed I still had a large amount of peaches I froze this past Summer.  So I got to work.  The sweetness of the peaches with a touch of honey combines so well with the juicy tartness of the blackberries.  We’ve continued to enjoy our blackberries, just in different form, and I hope you will as well.
