A delicious jam that I enjoy making every year.



8 cups of fresh blueberries

7 cups of sugar

2 pouches of liquid pectin (3 oz. each)

2 tbs. lemon juice


Place blueberries in a stockpot.

Stir in the sugar and lemon juice Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly.

Stir in pectin. Boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat; skim off foam.

Ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace.

Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids.

Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.


Processing time is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.
