Homemade Blueberry Freezer Jam

Yields:
6 cups

Ingredients

  • 6.5 cups Fresh blueberries
  • 1 pack (1.75 oz) Granulated fruit pectin for lower sugar recipes
  • 4.5 cups Sugar, divided
  • 1 tbsp Ground ginger or 2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind, optional

 

Directions

  1. Place whole blueberries in a food processor container; pulse until coarsely chopped. Or, place blueberries in a bowl; crush with a potato masher or pastry blender.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine blueberries and ½ cup water. In a small bowl, stir together pectin and ¼ cup of the sugar. Stir pectin mixture into blueberries.
  3. Over high heat, stirring constantly, bring mixture to a rolling boil. Add the remaining 4 ¼ cups sugar all at once; return to a rolling boil. Boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat; skim off any foam; set aside until cool enough to handle, about 30 minutes.
  5. Transfer to 1-cup freezer containers, filling to about ½ inch from the top; continue to cool at room temperature until jam has set; cover and freeze.
  6. Thaw to serve; store any leftover jam in the refrigerator for up to one month.
