Blueberry Jam Recipe


Blueberries are not only delicious when eaten fresh, but they also make a fantastic jam that can be enjoyed year-round. Making blueberry jam at home is quite simple and requires minimal ingredients. Follow this easy recipe to create your own homemade blueberry jam that will impress your friends and family.

Gathering Ingredients

To make blueberry jam, you will need the following ingredients:
1. 4 cups of fresh blueberries
2. 1 cup of sugar
3. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
4. 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
5. 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Make sure to wash the blueberries thoroughly and remove any stems or leaves before using them in the jam. You can also adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste preferences — some people prefer a sweeter jam, while others may like it slightly tart.

Preparing the Jam

1. In a large saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt.

2. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries start to release their juices and the sugar has dissolved.

3. Continue to cook the jam, stirring frequently, until it thickens to your desired consistency. This usually takes about 20-30 minutes.

4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the jam cool slightly before transferring it to clean, sterilized jars.

Your homemade blueberry jam is now ready to be enjoyed! Spread it on toast, use it as a topping for pancakes or yogurt, or give it as a gift to friends and family.

Storing the Jam

Once the jam has cooled completely, place the jars in the refrigerator to store. Homemade blueberry jam can be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks. If you prefer to store it for a longer period, you can also freeze the jam for up to six months.

Remember to label the jars with the date you made the jam so you can keep track of how long it has been stored. Enjoy your homemade blueberry jam on your favorite foods and share the deliciousness with others!
