Just made this this morning. It is WONDERFUL though a little thin thus the 4 stars. I know things can set up later but sometimes you can just tell when something is going to stay thin. But the taste is fantastic and it's still spreadable, just a bit drippy. The citrus and the Blueberries are a great taste together. Flavors like this are why I can. You'll rarely find them outside of a specialty shop otherwise. Thanks Sharon!!
Got from Rita as a gift. YUM!
This was my first review Because of canning and keeping the Marmalade for Christmas presents, I followed the recipe pectin package recipe as well. Which said to bring to a rolling boil for 10 minutes add pectin then return to a rolling boil for 1 minute.Then jar and seal immediately in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. I skipped the water the recipe didn`t need it. I used 4 cups of crushed blueberries, and 6 cups of sugar. This batch made 10 1/2 pints of Sweet & Tangy Blueberry Marmalade. — Sep 9, 2003 My second review I followed the direction as stated and the maralade did come out thin. They do say it takes sometimes up to 2 weeks to jell. If it doesn`t I will use it for pancakes or ice cream toppings.It`s still very good thick or thin.
