Like Blueberries and Lemon, the lime makes this refreshing. When blueberries are on sale, instead of canning only pie filling, why not make some jam? Great for desserts, breads, on top of ice cream!

For those without booklet or not sure of time, this came from my booklet for my Sunbeam Bread Maker.
Select Basic setting.
Press the Start, Stop button and allow to mix for 5-6 minutes, scraping down the sides of the pan. Press the Start Stop button again to cancel.
Select Bake setting and press Start Stop. I have used Basic on this. Let cycle continue until it signals and displays 0:00, then press Start Stop. Using hot pads, remove the pan and pour jam into containers, cover and refrigerate to set. Makes 3 cups. (I just use my own way of canning with a hot water bath, but if seals are new, you can do it this way and just invert the jars when lids are placed on and screwed on (not super tight).
