Blueberry Jam in the Freezer

Blueberry Jam in the Freezer
Raspberry Jam on the left (from the recipe on the back of the Bernadin Freezer Jam Pectin) and Blueberry jam on the right. Yum!

Blueberries are out in full force at the Farmers Markets right now but I’m sure this recipe could also be easily made from frozen (I think). Go buy blueberries & get cooking your very own blueberry jam!

Blueberry Freezer Jam

Yield: 108 2 tsp servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 33 minutes
Total Time: 38 minutes

An easy way to preserve the deliciousness of summer's blueberries for the winter!

Ingredients

  • 8 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 45g pouch Bernadin freezer jam pectin (I'm sure any freezer jam pectin will do but NOT regular)

Instructions

  1. Wash, thoroughly drain and crush blueberries one layer at a time (using a potato masher) in a large heavy saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar and let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Stirring constantly, gradually add in pectin and stir for an additional 3 minutes.
  4. Ladle jam into straight sided (without shoulders) canning jars or freezer containers leaving 1/2" space at the top. Cover with tight fitting lids.
  5. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or freezer for up to 1 year.
  6. Makes about 4 1/2 cups.

Notes

: I use Bernadin 250mL wide mouth jars. I like the small size b/c you can use up the jam quicker so it doesn't go bad in the fridge. The wide mouth jars also make it much easier to ladle the jam in. This jam is REALLY GOOD!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!

Glass jars are a-okay as long as they have straight sides and you leave 1/2" "head space" at the top in case the jam expands when frozen. I used the same jars (I used new lids) last year without any issues.

Great looking jam! Is it okay to freeze the jam in those jars? I thought you had to use the plastic ones?
