Cinnamon Blueberry Jam Recipe

Cinnamon Blueberry Jam Recipe

Watching my grandmother can hundreds of jars of tomatoes, peaches and pears inspired me to first try making jams and jellies myself. I can remember, as a girl, going down into her cellar—all those jars on the shelves gave me such a warm homey feeling! This jam is one my family enjoys on warm homemade corn or blueberry muffins. The cinnamon's a bit of a surprise. —Barbara Burns, Phillipsburg, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh or frozen blueberries (about 1 quart)
  • 3-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon bottled lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. Crush blueberries; measure 2-1/2 cups and place in a large saucepan. Add the sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves; bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in the pectin. Return to a full rolling boil; boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
