Blueberry Freezer Jam

Blueberry Freezer Jam created by Mimi in Maine

The freezer jams are so good as they taste like the fresh fruit because they have never been cooked. This is a yummy jam and needs to be tried. To get the best taste you need to use the wild blueberries. Once I used the big cultivated ones in the store because it was winter and I needed to make some. There was hardly any flavor except it was sweet. The wild blueberries are are so tasty. NOTE: Do not reduce the sugar or use a sugar substitute as it will not set correctly.

  • 2 pints wild blueberries (to make 2 cups of crushed berries)
  • 1 12 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • Measure the exact amount of sugar (no sugar substitutes) and stir into the prepared fruit; mix well and let stand for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • While waiting, in a small bowl, stir the Certo fruit pectin into the lemon juice.
  • After the 10 minutes has gone by with the berries, stir the pectin mixture into the prepared fruit.
  • Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy--about 4 minutes (a few sugar crystals may remain--it's O.K.).
