First time jam maker here -- this recipe was very easy to make and tasted awesome. After the jam had set (24 hours), my boyfriend and I cracked open a test jar (these were holiday gifts) to try it out. He spent the next thirty minutes making "jam sandwiches" as he called them. One little tip that I found somewhere else on the web ... let the jam stand for a few minutes in the cooking vessel before putting it in the jars -- the extra time will allow the jam to start to gel slightly and prevent all the fruit from floating to the top of the jars as they gel.

Used fresh blueberries, doubled the recipe and ended up with 10 half-pints of delicious jam!! This is a keeper! It will be a staple next to my strawberry jam & apple jelly!

I made this using fresh blueberries, other than that I followed the recipe. Beautiful in the jars. Having never tasted blueberry jam before, I was pleasantly surprised with my results. I got 6 half pints and 1 quarter pint. I expect to be making more of this one. Thanks!
