Grandma's Best Blueberry Cinnamon Jam

Caroline ShupertRecipes


Picking blueberries was a family project. We would freeze some and make jam from the rest. Here is a favorite old family recipe for jam. Its an easy one, too!

This jam was so good on toast, ice cream, or for filling a simple yellow cake. We all loved it. It was the taste of summer, and memories of fun while berry picking as a family, all year long.
