Easy Blueberry Freezer Jam Recipe

We love to make freezer jams here at our home, especially when our blueberries are in season. I use the classic recipe that comes with the box of Sure Jell.

Blueberry Freezer Jam

2 1/2 pints fresh blueberries
5 1/4 cups granulated sugar
freezer-safe containers

Wash and discards any stems. Crush blueberries using a potato masher or lightly blend in a blender. Do not puree the fruit, there should be small chunks of fruit in jam. Place crushed blueberries into a bowl with EXACTLY 5 1/4 cups of granulated sugar. Stir to coat the berries and then let it sit for exactly 10 minutes. In a saucepan, bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil and then stir in 1 box of Sure Jell. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir pectin in with the blueberries, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved (about 3-4 minutes.)

Pour mixture into your prepared containers, leaving a 1/2" head space at top to allow for expansion during freezing time. Cover or seal container. Let this mixture stand at room temperature for 24 hours or until set.

You can store them jam in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or in your freezer for up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
