Last weekend was later.
I had heard about Blueberry Lime jam from Chickens in the Road and then when I was reading through the Ball Blue Book for ideas, I found another version of that recipe and decided that it was a good excuse to use the leftover-getting-kind-of-hard-on-the-outside-key limes I had in the fridge. I jiggled the proportions a bit and here's my version. It was a big hit with everyone in the family.
Blueberry Lime Jam
- 5 cups blueberries [fresh or frozen]
- 1 cup water
- 3 T Ball pectin [1 pkg]
- 5 cups sugar
- Juice of three key limes - about 1/3 cup.
- Some lime zest - up to a Tablespoon
This jam looks like blackberry jam and raspberry jam. Label the jars as soon as the lids are on so you don't confuse them with something else later.
