    This is a wonderful, slightly chunky jam made without Pectin. For a more intense Lemon Flavor, add an extra teaspoon of Lemon Rind to the recipe.

      Fabulous recipe - I ran the first couple of cups of blueberries through the blender for a slightly smoother base to the jam. I also substituted two cups Stevia for two cups of sugar. Once the jam reached a full boil that could not be stirred down, it was exactly 20 minutes before the pan of berries was thick and ready to be put in jars. Love the flavor and texture. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.

      My cooking time was much longer to make the jam thick, and I even added a bit of grated apple peel for natural pectin. However, the end result was delicious! I will be making this again. Thanks for such an easy recipe. :)

      Fabulous recipe! It sets wonderfully, and this is so flavorful. I love the combination of smooth and chunky in this jam. I love seeing the chunks of fruit in the jam. This tastes so fresh I won't go back to store bought. We found our new house favorite! I was only able to make three 8 ounce jelly jars with this recipe. Am I able to double or triple this recipe and still get the same great results? I did water bath process these little gems but I can't seem to keep them in storage long enough.
