I have been making this for several years now and my entire family ask for it every year. The flavor is superb. The touch of grand mariner gives it just a hint of orange that is quite addictive. Matter of fact, I am making a trip to Sam's tomorrow and plan to buy enough blueberries to make a triple batch. Many thanks for an excellent recipe.

Delicious! Last season I used Triple Sec (tight budget), but today I made this jam using the Grand Marnier--I found a store that carries the small bottle. The cashier asked me if I was going to make a pie with the blueberries I was buying, and I told her about this jam. She wants to buy a jar! This recipe made 8 half-pint jars, plus and extra 1/4 cup for tomorrow's breakfast bagel. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
