Blueberry Jam

We just picked a lot of blueberries at Old Orchard Creek Farms in North Carolina over the 4'th. A great farm owned by two wonderful people. Check them out at www.oldorchardcreek.com . With all the blueberries we decided we would make some Blueberry Jam! This is the first time we have ever made jam and it turned out wonderful! I highly recommend trying this recipe as the added spices give it a unique and wonderful flavor.


Ingredients

  • 8 cups fresh blueberries
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 pouches (3 ounces each) liquid fruit pectin

Directions

  • Place blueberries in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Transfer to a stockpot. Stir in the sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, lemon peel and nutmeg. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. head space. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water caner. Yield: 9 half-pints.
