Make your own Blueberry Balsamic Jam.

Homemade Blueberry Jam is easy.

I am not an expert canner. I married into a family of real experts and was very intimidated. My terrific sister-in-law gave me some lessons and now I can manage the very basics.

When I was growing up my mother kept bees. Every month we went to the Cook County Beekeepers Association meeting at the County building. As you entered there was a display of 4H projects. One was on the dangers of home canning. It was gross and my understanding was that if you canned and preserved you were signing you and your families death warrant. It wasn’t until I met my sister-in-law that I realized that people regularly survived home canning and that it was far better than storebought when done right!

For a delicious breakfast with protein spoon some Blueberry Balsamic Jam into plain greek yogurt.

I wanted to make jam but blueberries by themselves can be a little flat, one dimensional. I thought about adding lemon but then inspiration struck as I decided that balsamic vinegar with its complex, spicy sweet/tartness was the special ingredient that would spice up the blueberries…..and it did! Super Delicious Blueberry Balsamic Jam was invented!

Ingredients

  • 3 pints of blueberries - fresh or frozen
  • 1 package powdered pectin
  • 4 cups of sugar
  • 4 Tbsp Dark Balsamic Vinegar

Instructions

  1. Cook the berries gently with the Balsamic Vinegar. Puree. There should be about 4 cups of pureed blueberries.
  2. Put your jars and lids into a large pot of boiling water. Boil at least five minutes. Remove from the pot with tongs as you fill them so they stay very hot.
  3. Stir in the package of pectin.
  4. Bring to a rolling boil.
  5. Dump in the 4 cups of sugar in one go. Stir, stir, stir.
  6. Bring to a rolling boil.
  7. Ladle the hot jam into the hot jars and put the lids on immediately.
  8. You should hear the lids pop as they cool.
  9. As this is a boiling sugar solution (extremely hot) I don't process these in boiling water.
  10. Makes about 7 cups of jam.

    I SO love the combination of balsamic and any kind of berry! I think this one's a must try especially since it looks so good! I've never tried it with greek yogurt, thanks for the suggestion!
  3. Dr. K. Lee Banks says:
    I do like blueberry jam, but I also never thought of combining blueberries and balsamic vinegar. It seems like something that shouldn't go with fruit! But I guess it would give the jam a sweet and sour taste.

      Balsamic is so different from other kinds of vinegar. It's amazing drizzled over strawberries. It is sweet and tart and spicy all at the same time.
    • Gillikent says:
      Pectin is the agent that makes jam jell. It is available in the grocery store in the baking aisle. It's also available on Amazon. It's in the product grid below the recipe.

    This looks and sounds so good! It would be great for a christmas present too! I have been learning recently that things like this that I think I would never make are actually not too hard and are so worth it!
  5. Patty Leonard Woodland says:
    Yummy! I also do a lot of canning. That would make sure I have summer fruits even in the dead of winter. Blueberry jam is great to have on hand. I will try this recipe of yours. I think there are still enough blueberries I can pick to make some jam.
