Easy Blueberry Freezer Jam

Easy Blueberry Freezer Jam

What You’ll Need:
  • 5 Cups of Fresh/frozen Blueberries
  • 2 cups of Sugar
  • 6 TBSP Ball Freezer Jam Pectin (instant) {can be found at most grocery stores or Wal-Mart}
  • Freezer-safe canning jars or small tupperware containers
  • Wash berries (defrost and rain if using frozen) then place in a shallow pan.
  • Use masher to crush berries {consistency will depend on how chunky you like your jam} I ended up having to use a fork to get them all crushed.
  • The berries will look something like this, after they’ve been mashed…
  • In separate bowl, mix together Pectin and Sugar.
  • Add mashed berries into mixture, and stir for 3 minutes.
    • Scoop jam into small freezer-safe jars or tupperware containers. I used 12 -16oz Jars
    • Let jam set for 30 minutes, then store in your freezer until you’re ready to use your tasty jam.
    • I take out one at a time to keep in the fridge.
    • Store in freezer for up to 1 year, or in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
    • Recipe makes approximately three 12 oz. jars.

The Savings:

Blueberries $3.99 BOGO (2) pints were just enough
Pectin $4.50 i only used 1/2 the jar $2.25

Total Spent: $6.24

12oz Jars at the store are about $3.39 each.

I got three 12oz jars from this recipe

Store cost: $10.17
My Cost: $6.24

Savings: $3.93
