Blueberry Freezer Jam
Source: recipe on back of Ball Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin
4 cups crushed blueberries (I used 3 1/2 cups of pureed berries)**
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1.59-ounce package of Ball Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin
Stir sugar and contents of package in a bowl until well blended.
Stir in 4 cups of crushed fruit (or 3 1/2 cups pureed blueberries). Stir 3 minutes longer.
Ladle jam into clean jars to fill line. Twist on lids. Let stand until thickened, about 30 minutes.
**You can use a variety of fruits and berries. For best results, the package directions suggest apricots, berries, cherries, grapes, pears, plums and most other tender fruit, with different directions for peaches. For berries without skins like strawberries or blackberries, I would go with the crushed fruit instead of pureeing it.
