Sophia and I hosted a few friends over this week to make blueberry jam. Making jam is so simple. First you need some good friends to join you, yummy fruit, canning jars, pectin, lemon juice, sugar, and some large pots. A food processor is nice to puree the fruit up, but not necessary – you could just mush it with a food masher. We used the low-sugar recipe from last year – works like a charm!
We made 71 half-pint jars of blueberry jam. I wish I had thought to take a photo of the towering stack of jam jars, but I was kinda tired and forgot. Nothing beats putting your feet up after 3+ hours of canning, sipping some ice tea! Except maybe eating the fruits of your labor!
