Spiced Blueberry Honey Jam

Jams and Spreads

Honey adds its own delicate nuance to the more defined blueberry and nutmeg flavours in this delightful jam. It can be made anytime with frozen blueberries.

  • 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) fresh or frozen coarsely chopped blueberries
  • 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (250 mL) liquid honey
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground nutmeg
  • 1 pouch liquid fruit pectin
  1. Place blueberries, sugar, honey, lemon juice and nutmeg in a large stainless steel or enamel saucepan.  Bring to a full boil over high heat and boil hard for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in pectin.                   
  2. Ladle into hot jars and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water canner.
