I recently posted a recipe for strawberry jam and black raspberry jam. My husband and I have discovered that we really enjoy canning jams. It’s a great way to use those in season berries and it’s something that we really love doing together. Plus, who doesn’t love having that sort of treat around!? More recently, we made blueberry jam. This one might just be my new favorite. This is the recipe if you’d like to try your hand at making your own:
- 6 cups blueberries, washed and picked over
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 4 cups sugar
- 1 pouch (3 ounces) liquid fruit pectin
- ~ 8 pint jars
Making jams is rather easy and not very time consuming. Allow yourself an hour from start to finish and with just that short of time, you’ll have jam to enjoy for a year. It’s well worth the time and effort when you spread the treat onto a biscuit and enjoy!
I hope you’ll love this recipe as much as we do! As for me, I will see you all in two weeks. I’m vacationing next week and will be taking the week off from Three Ladies and Their Babies, but like always, you’ll be hearing from Ashley and Steph!
