I made this jam yesterday...I found that a quart of blueberries was 3 1/2 cups so I added some rasberries. Otherwise stuck to the recipe and let me tell you it was fantastic. I live alone and this made just the right amount for a jam jar...so easy that I wont have to buy the high priced spreads anymore..now Im dying to try adding different spices or perhaps some wine or brandy...anyway, this is sooo perfect as is I am most happy!!
Thank you so much for this recipe! Hubby loves a very pricey "Swedish Blueberry Jam" and now he actually likes this better. Little does he know I used a third cup of Splenda for Baking instead of the called for sugar. Otherwise,I followed the recipe as written. This also makes a terrific ice cream topping.
I made this on the stove top yesterday. For me, it did not thicken very much and ended up being more of a blueberry sauce than a jam. I'm not sure if this is because I made it on the stove top or what. Regardless, we had it on pancakes tonight, and it was delicious. I'm almost glad it turned out thinner than I expected because it made a really awesome syrup.
So easy and Yummy! I have never made jam before and I am giving it away this christmas! Its Perfect Thanks
Mmmmmmmm good!! Was searching for an easy fast recipe with little ingredients and found this!! Wow!! The only change I made was to use Splenda (a little less than 1/2 cup) and I would even use less next time as fresh blueberries are already so sweet! I also didn't puree the blueberries as I wanted some texture to the jam! Thanks :)
Outstanding! Thank you so much for a high-fructose-corn-syrup-free jelly/jam =D
Loved this jam. Made a low calorie version by substituting the sugar with splenda and adding honey for some extra sweetness.
Delicious and easy. I just got home from vacation with fresh bluberries (and a ton on laundry). My husband could not beleive I made jam before he could get done with the yard work. Thanks Lennie for a great recipe. I used the berries whole and it is wonderful. I will be making this again.
