Blueberry Jam

I braved the 90 degree weather this weekend and went and picked my first bunch of blueberries. With the wind of Lake Michigan it made it a little easier however I think I lost some weight with all the sweating I did.

I decided to make blueberry jam. I never canned anything blueberry before so it was a new experience. It was a lot quicker than strawberry or peach jam since there's not peeling or slicing involved so my hands a wrists were very happy.  Here are some photos of the process.

Sorting out the berries

Washing the berries (They look so yummy)
Adding sugar and pectin

The final product

Can't wait to make some homemade bread or buttermilk biscuits to the spread this yummy jam on.

I plan on going again to pick more berries to make syrup and pie filling.


  1. I did blueberry jam last year, but it was more like sauce. Hello pancakes! Now I just freeze them whole and throw them into muffins, breads, pancakes, whatever.

  2. I made blueberry jam this year also. So good on biscuits and pancakes, and toast.

  3. Good idea BoPeep. I think I'll do that as well.


I love hearing from my readers. Thanks for leaving a comment! :-)
