"I adapted this to use in my jam maker, the added spices perk up the blueberry flavor. Gave it as Xmas gifts and it was well received."
"Excellent! This was my first attempt at making jam and it was a success. Delicious recipe! Thank you for sharing it."
"Easy and Delicious! I omitted the cloves, but otherwise made exactly as stated. This made 5 half pints plus a 4 oz. jar. Excited about giving these later in the year for Christmas gifts. Will definitely be making more with my remaining berries. Thanks for sharing Barbara!"
"As someone who has made jam for 20 years, this recipe is a stand-out!!!!! I live in New England, where local blueberries are abundant in the summer months, so I will be making this jam ALOT!!! Excellent & easy. BUT VERY IMPORTANT-NEVER, EVER ALTER A JELLY OR JAM RECIPE. IT WILL AFFECT THE SET OF YOUR HARD WORK. Jellies & jams are not like typical recipes where you can tweak them-measure accurately & follow the recipe exactly for perfect product every time. Good luck!!!!!!"
