"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."
"Fantastic jam!!! Very easy to make. The lime was an unexpected twist and although you cannot actually taste the lime, I feel that the citrus really pumps up the blueberry flavor. Saving this recipe to my favorites menu for future use!"
"I enjoy canning and I frequently make raspberry jam. When I was on Block Island RI this summer, a friend told me about a delicious blueberry jam with lime. I found this recipe and would love to try it; however, the blueberry season is over for us. Has anyone used frozen blueberries? If yes, are there any special considerations which should be given to accommodate the frozen blueberries. I appreciate your help! I look forward to making this jam. The flavor combinations sound wonderful."
"This is an easy and tasty blueberry jam. The lime works really well with this. Thanks!"
"Very simple and yet tastes absolutely wonderful!"
"Made this and I landed up giving them as part of gift baskets. I never got to really taste it but I got comments on how much they enjoyed it. I will make double the amount next year Thanks Sharon"
"This is a fabulous jam! It was one of the first things I ever canned and it turned out so very good. A great first start for me in canning and an inspiration to keep me going."
"This is my go-to recipe for blueberry jam - I won't make it any other way. Everyone always comments on the flavor (the lime isn't too strong, but it REALLY adds a lot to it). I crush my blueberries in a food processor rather than doing it by hand; the results are a little smoother."
"I'm giving 5 stars because I trust the other reviewers and the way mine came out is through noone's fault but my own. Can someone help a sister out and tell me where I went wrong? I've only been canning for a year...
Ok so I wanted to make a larger batch that 6 half-pints. I had 4 pints of berries, which, once mashed, yielded about 2.5 cups of fruit. I followed the directions and added the package of pectin and combined, brought to a boil.
I then added sugar - 4 cups. Then once it was a rolling boil, I added the lime - juice form 5 small limes (about 1/3 cup juice).
Not sure how long I cooked it, but I kept checking it on a plate with the freezer. And I canned it as soon as it looked jelled. But then when I was cleaning everything up, all the extra residue on everything is VERY jelled. Is this normal? What if it comes out toooo jelled?
Also, when I tasted it out of the pot, before canning, it was DELICIOUS, but when I tasted some of the jelled residue on the plate, utensils, etc. It didn't have much of a flavor of anything, aside from sugar. Please please tell me what I did wrong?? Did it likey effect anything that I used an immersion blender briefly after mashing to break up more of the skin?
"I have tried lots of Blueberry jam recipes, This is so far my favorite.
The lime cuts the sweetness from the sugar.
The end result is really refreshing and it jelled perfectly."
"I didn't have a lime so I used orange zest.....mmmm! Just a hint of flavor in the jam and it made it taste so good. Great recipe, thanks!!"
"This is a delicious recipe! It did not sound appetizing at all when I read the name (not a huge fan of blueberries or limes). The flavors play off each other beautifully though. I have made 3 batches in 3 days. Thank you again and again for this recipe."
"Love this! This is our new favorite jam recipe. Definitely a keeper!"
"Easy and delicious - I made 2 batches on a weeknight. I added about a teaspoon more lime zest and probably a couple extra tablespoons of lime juice because I love the tartness!"
"Freezer died and had a bunch of blueberries...this is GREAT. Love the lime in there. My daughter (2 years licked off 4 spoonfuls and then I just gave her a small bowl to eat...she came back screaming for more, I had just filled the canner...she grabbed the towel I had spilled some on and licked it off...what more can I say an A+?"
"Soooo good! I used frozen blueberries and made it exactly as the recipe calls. It came out perfect. The lime adds such a great flavor to this jam. It tastes gourmet! I will be making this again and again. Thanks!"
"Yum, yum, YUM! This is such a wonderful tasting jam! I made exactly as stated except that I doubled the recipe. ;) Made 7 1/2 pints. Thanks Sharon! I'll be making this jam again."
