And joy. Today, let's choose joy. Let's decide to have fun no matter what. Keep things simple. I know making jam may not be on the top of anyone's to-do list, but this was completely fun for me and fun to share. If it's not your jam (HA!), find what is and do it. You'll discover joy in the process...
On to the jam...I have a very real love affair with all things sweet AND savory. And I LOVE tasty condiments! That being said, a scoop of this jam on top of a grilled chicken salad or roasted veggies makes my heart sing! However, this is just as delightful on top of your bread of choice or wherever you like to add that sweetness.
Simply Blueberry Jam:
- 12 oz blueberries (fresh or frozen) I also love making it with raspberries! See raspberry finished jam below.
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp gelatin (I use Vital Proteins unflavored beef gelatin. Ordered mine through Amazon.)
- Pinch of salt
Simmer the blueberries and water about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer another 10-15 minutes allowing it to thicken and reduce. Once it's had a chance to become more 'jammish', let cool and then store in the fridge. I really like to store in smaller containers so I can pop some in the freezer and share with friends! Enjoy!
