I love the taste of homemade summer jam in the middle of the winter. It brings back such memories of summertime and the abundance of fresh berries. I’m always looking for jam recipes with a slight twist, an unusual ingredient or flavor. Previously I have made Strawberry Fig Jam, today I am making Blueberry Lime Jam. This recipe has a hint of lime in it, which makes it taste ever so refreshing. The recipe makes about six 8-ounce jars. Perfect for stocking your pantry or for gift giving.

We may not have our own blueberry bushes now but we are in a very agricultural region of Oregon with all sorts of berries and nut trees everywhere. Thankfully there is no shortage of pick your own blueberries! I will fill our freezer and pantry one way or another!

Abundant Blueberries!

Blueberry Lime Jam

Ingredients

4 ½ cups crushed blueberries
Grated zest and juice of 1 large lime
1 package of regular powdered fruit pectin (1.75oz)
5 cups of granulated sugar

Directions

Before you start prepare your canner, jars and lids.

In a large, deep stainless steel saucepan, combine berries, lime zest and lime juice. Whisk in pectin until dissolved. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Add sugar all at once and return to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Remove from heat and skim off foam.

jam, prudent pantry

Ladle hot jam into hot jars, leaving ¼ inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary by adding hot jam. Wipe rim. Center the lid on jar. Screw band down until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip-tight.

Place jars in canner, ensuring they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil and process for 10 minutes. Removed canner lid. Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars, cool and store.

In the middle of the cold winter months enjoy the fresh taste of this jam on your homemade bread.

I love this flavour combination, Nancy, and the colour of the jam is just beautiful. It would be perfect on a scone with cream for afternoon tea! I’m featuring your jam at the Hearth and Soul Link party this week. I really appreciate your support of the party! Hope to see you there, and have a wonderful week!
