I was selected by Natrel to participate in pledge. They sent me a summer preserves kit to make some delicious jam. THANKS NATREL! The Spiced Blueberry Honey Jam recipe is from a book that was supplied with my kit: Preserving Made Easy. I added a pinch of cinnamon since it is one of my favourite spices and it added a nice touch! mmmmm….. who doesn’t like cinnamon?!
2-1/2 cups fresh or frozen chopped blueberries
2-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup liquid honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp ground nutmeg (or grate the seed of a nutmeg for fresh flavour)
1 pouch liquid fruit pectin
**1 pinch cinnamon
Makes 4 cups (1 L)
Place blueberries, sugar, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a full boil over high heat and boil hard for 2 minutes, constantly stirring. Remove from heat and stir in pouch of pectin. Ladle into hot jars!
