This one is delicious! I used two pouches of pectin since the basic blueberry jam recipe in the pectin box instructions called for it. It turned out fine. This one's a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. This jam is amazing!!! Try it over cream cheese with crakers for a tasty appetizer. I wish I had made more. The lime gives the jam so much life and a bit of zippiness.

Excellent, bright flavour. I used Bernardin No Sugar Needed pectin, and sweetened my jam with honey (1 cup) instead of sugar. Very happy with the results.
