  1. Wild Blueberry Jam

  2. Yield: 6 half pints

  3. 2 pounds wild blueberries, washed and drained

  4. 4 to 5 lemons - juice and pulp (about 1 cup)

  5. 1 cup water

  6. 3-1/2 to 4 cups sugar

  7. Combine water & berries in a large pan. Bring to a boil - mash

  8. some of the berries. Add sugar and lemon juice/pulp. Boil until

  9. jelling point is reached (I use the saucer in the freezer test).

  10. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Adjust

  11. 2 piece lids and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.

  12. Notes: I had hoped for more of a lemon flavor so next time I will

  13. use the zest of the lemons. Also, I am at 2000 feet above sea level so the processing time may need to be adjusted for your

  14. altitude.
