Blueberry Jam

Here is another canning recipe to add to your repitoire.
Its always good to have a few of these things on hand.
It is best to use fresh blueberries.
SHHHH!
Don't tell anyone, but I used frozen blueberries
I got them last season and I am just now making jam.
I know, I know I am a procrastinator!
When I picked these, things were a bit hectic, so I put them in the freezer.
I then did what I normally do, promptly forgot about them
Until now.
So enjoy these yummy blueberries with your toast or biscuit.

    I love jam. I don’t eat many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (I leave that to Dudette), but I do dollop the stuff on toast, scones or English muffins. Blueberry is right up there as a favorite. I think it’s smart to freeze what you can’t get to yet and then do the canning when you have time. It looks delicious.

    Looks good, even using frozen berries. I can’t believe you can do that! … learned something new. I love jam and have making batches over the weekend.

    Frozen or not, this looks excellent. It is good to know that the jam could turn out that good with the frozen (which is all I have). :)

    Yum! This jam looks amazing. There’s nothing wrong with frozen, they taste just as good, but your secret is safe with me.

    I always wonder what if I just store the jam in a regular container, will it turn bad fast?
