Fresh homemade blueberry pie filling you canned yourself.

Top Review by jturneraok40

I picked blueberries for 2 hours, cleaned stems for another hour. Thought the recipe was different from any other canning I'd done due to very short cooking time and very long processing time but I went with it. The syrup was VERY thin and runny, the recipe neglected to inform of amount of air/fill space to leave at the top so I had to guess. Thus almost none of the jars sealed properly. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean the blueberries carefully and drain.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, lemon rind, nutmeg, mace, sugar, and water; cook until the mixture begins to boil.
  3. Fold in the blueberries and cook 1 minute more.
  4. Ladle mixture into hot jars. Release the air bubbles by running a knife along the side.
  5. Clean the rims of the jars, seal, and process in a water bath for 30 minutes.
