Blueberry Jam

Natalie Loop


Took a detour yesterday on my way home and we couldn't resist a u-pick farm. My 7 yr. old Gabe who is always game for moms spontaneous impulsive let's stop and pick moments.
We picked a good amount of blue berries not to mention the ones we ate and hurried home to prep these beauties for jam and some for muffins, bread & other surprises.

How to Make Blueberry Jam


  1. Wash, drain on paper towels. Remove stems and crush ripe blue berries completely, one layer at a time. I use a food processor.
  2. Measure about 4 cups of crushed fruit. Add more berries if necessary.
  3. Place berries in a large, heavy kettle and stir in the lemon juice and the Sure or Can-Jel. Stir over high heat until the mixture comes to a hard boil. Immediately add the sugar and stir. Bring back to a full rolling boil; boil hard for 1 min, stirring constant.
  4. Remove from heat; skimming off foam with metal spoon. Ladle into sterilized jars leaving 1/2" head space. Seal and process in hot bath for 20 mins. covered.
