Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Stem and crush blueberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 4-1/2 cups prepared blueberries into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Stir sugar into prepared blueberries in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

My husband brings home wild blueberries from Canada every year, I have been experimenting with different blueberry recipes and this year decided to try jam. I used this recipe and it is the best ever! I think I have a new favorite jam! I have coworkers asking to buy it from me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I will make this again but with a few changes. I will make this again but with a few changes. It turned out pretty lumpy and with little flavor. Next time, I will use frozen berries instead of fresh and I'll mash half of the berries through a sieve. It might require more berries, but at least I won't be prying the skins out of my teeth...might even wake the flavor up a tad, too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and easy jam recipe. Quick and easy jam recipe. Great on toast or english muffins with butter, but peanut butter tends to take an edge off the blueberry flavor and leave it mostly just sweet tasting. All in all a good jam recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and Easy. Delicious and Easy. I got rave reviews on it from family and friends. I put the blueberries in a food processor instead of mashing them by hand. Much easier, and makes smaller chunks in the jam.
