The Technique

Blueberry-Lemon Jam

Once a small batch of Blueberry-Lemon Jam has been prepared, the uses for it are endless. Aside from spreading it over breakfast classics including English muffins, croissants & biscuits, there are many ways in which it may be used in the bakeshop. Summer pies, tarts & galettes benefit tremendously from the flavor contrast. This refrigerator jam may be prepared with either fresh blueberries or berries that have been frozen. Simply measure the amount you need & add them directly to the pot without thawing them in advance. Learn how to make a seasonal delight in your very own kitchen.

makes 2 cups

5 cups fresh blueberries
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup water
A pinch of kosher salt

Combine the blueberries, the sugar & the lemon juice in a Dutch oven. Bring the mixture to a boil over Medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. The mixture should bubble vigorously during the entire cooking process. Stir all over the pot sides & bottom to prevent scorching. When it is the proper consistency, the mixture should just cover the bottom of the pot in an even layer. When you ring the sides with a rubber spatula, it will appear to gel on the edges. Remove from the heat & transfer to a small bowl. Chill 2 hours or up to 2 days.

How To Make Blueberry-Lemon Jam

It is the natural pectin in the berries that thicken this easy stovetop, refrigerator jam beautifully. Fresh lime juice in place of the lemon would make an equally delicious variation. Look to these visual clues to guide you as you prepare it.
