Food/Cooking, Using Herbs and Flowers

Blueberry Basil Jam

I had some blueberries I needed to use up so I made Blueberry Basil Jam.

I did not can it because it only made around 4 cups and I plan on giving some to my dad. Plus, I’ll eat toast with the jam for breakfast for a while. So it’s more a refrigerator jam.

4 cups blueberries

1 cup sugar

1 Tbsp lemon juice

2 Tbsp fresh chopped basil (I used a mixture of cinnamon and sweet basil from my garden)

Put the blueberries, sugar and lemon juice in a pan and cook over medium high heat until it comes to a rolling boil. Turn the heat down and simmer 25-30 minutes. Turn the heat off and stir in the chopped basil. Let cool and pour into refrigerator containers (I separated mine into four 1-cup recycled containers that used to hold oysters.)

Had some toast with this as a snack last night and it was delicious!

How do you use your blueberries up? What kind of jam do you like to make? Would love to hear from you!



My Etsy Store:

Here are a few of the products available with my art printed on them (by clicking an item you like, it will take you to the page where it’s available). They’d make great gifts to yourself or someone you love and would help support my dream of becoming a full-time writer and artist. Any purchase would be SO appreciated, but if you don’t want to or can’t, that’s totally fine. Just stopping by and reading my blog is a huge support.
