This recipe calls for 2 pints of berries but later in the recipe refers to 3 cups of berries. I used the 2 pints/4 cups as it stated. Also, as stated in the comments of this recipe, the amount of sugar that this recipe calls for is absolutely ridiculous. This was my first time making this but I am confident that there are much better recipes out here. Also, there needs to be some kind of liquid other than the lemon juice added to the berries and reduced down to make the juice. I also put my berries and juice through the blender to prevent large chunks of blueberries being almost whole in the jame.Reply
This is a great recipe if you want to taste sugar with a bit of fruit flavor. It’s a lousy recipe if you want to actually taste the fruit. Cut the sugar amount in half (or more). And you don’t need to add pectin if you’re using fresh (Or frozen) blueberries.. they have plenty of pectin to thicken your jam. The key is to purée the berries, the slowly simmer them for 30-45 minutes with frequent stirring to prevent scorching. When the jam coats the back of a spoon and stays there, it’s ready. Ladle It into jars, process at 185F for 5 minutes and enjoy.3Replies 1
