When I'm stressed, I make jam. And I can assure you that once you've tasted this incredibly delicious freezer jam, you'll be kicking the blues to the curb while you enjoy a hearty helping of this jam...right out of the canning jar!
Canning blueberries in a raw pack is easy enough for a new canner and special enough with the addition of Lavender Vanilla Syrup for one who seeks a delicious twist. Lovely on yogurt or with oatmeal, this one is a winner.
Blueberries are great candidates for jam-making because of their high level of pectin; lemon and thyme make them burst with flavor. This recipe comes to us from Karen Solomon, author of Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It.
Wild blueberries from the freezer case work just dandy in this jam recipe with mango. The secret ingredient is a bit of spice: ground coriander and cinnamon make enhance the blueberry flavor without making the jam taste weird. Mango for lusciousness.
It's fun and simple to make boozy berries. You don't even need a recipe. Just fill jars with ripe, clean berries, add a high-proof alcohol until the jar is about 3/4 full, then add herbal or fruity liqueur to top it off.
