Homemade Blueberry Jam

Blueberry Jam

We decided to whip up our own blueberry jam and it was so easy to make and tasted lovely with the french baguette bread we made!

Ingredients

2 pints fresh blueberries, rinsed
¾ cup agave nectar
¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
Juice of 1 lemon

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Mash the berries with a potato masher or back of a spoon. Lower the heat so that the mixture continues to boil gently. Continue to cook uncovered, for 20 -25 minutes or until the mixture is thick. Cool to room temperature, the jam will jell as it cools. Store in clean containers in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer for up to a year.

After making the jam, we also prepared a pitcher filled with slices of lime, lemon and orange with some mint leaves and had refreshing water for our pot luck party yesterday!
