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!

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!
