Blueberry-lemon Jam

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I love the combination of blueberry and lemon, so I can't wait to give this a try. From Ball Home Canning Products. It assumes you know safe and proper canning procedures.

I gave this a five, but with some caveats. I made a batch of the recipe as is, and it was toothachingly sweet! And really didn't have the lemon tang I wanted. So I made another batch and I lowered the sugar to 4 1/2 cups. I raised the lemon juice to 1/2 a cup and I also raised the lemon zest to 4 tsp (or two whole lemons worth). The result? Perfection! As a rule of thumb, most jams have a 1:1 sugar to fruit ratio.
