Easy Blueberry Jam Recipe

Pump up the jam.

Did I just make you relive the late 80s? Tell me you danced to Technotronic’s famous hit. In my husband’s words “is there any song you didn’t dance to?” Dancing is my cardio and yes, while making this blueberry jam, you bet the last song syndrome happens to be pump up the jam.

Now going to the real jam; when was the last time you bought a jar? I gotta tell you, I haven’t bought in ages because jam is fairly easy to make it. In fact, you can jam-mify any fruit you love. Making it does not involve any special cooking skills, other than 25 minutes of patience!

    So happy you made blueberry jam!! You don’t really need the tapioca flour – just cook it a little longer. Blueberries have a lot of natural pectin. Next time I make blueberry jam, I’ll try adding the spices you suggest 🙂

    I love blueberry jam and jelly. It doesn’t have the sweetness that others do which is what I enjoy about it. Sounds delicious.

    I’m so picky with jams. I struggle with texture and anything with pieces of “stuff” (I know it’s fruit) I can’t eat….same with Yogurt and peanut butter – no “things” can be in it. Basically – the jam has to be filtered and “juice” only. 🙂

    I LOVE blueberries!!! I swear everytime I eat them, I remember being a kid and sitting in fields eating them while wondering if a black bear would show up.

      you don’t actually eat anise, it’s for flavor only

    Blueberry jam is a favorite although I’ve never made it before! I’m currently enjoying some fig jam I made with the figs grown from my tree.

    Homemade Jam is always the best! We make homemade strawberry all of the time!

    I really need to try making my own jam! My mom used to make this tomato jam that was AMAZING.

    Sounds delicious and easy to make. I wouldn’t have thought to add Anis that’s a good tip
