Honey Blueberry Cobbler Jam

I work at a farmers market, and honey blueberry jam is my top seller. You've gotta taste it with fresh goat cheese and toasted candied pecans. —Krystal Wertman, Humble, Texas

    Hey Pam, I just saw your question I am the one who submitted this recipe to Taste of Home Magazine. I originally submitted the recipe as a regular processed Jam as that is the way that I make it regularly for the Farmers Market. You can definitely process it for at least 10 minutes in a hot bath.

    Can this be processed in a hot bath instead of freezing it? I love the idea of using honey in place of sugar. Thank you.
