Blueberry Cinnamon Jam

If you haven't already, tomorrow (Thursday Aug 11th) is the last day to sign up for the jam exchange!! We're just a few people away from 100! Lets get it to over 100 people! :)

Now for one of John's favorite jams. Blueberry cinnamon! Made with fresh picked (by me) blueberries from a local pick your own farm. LOVE.

This is super simple to make, and lasts a year.

Blueberry Jam with Cinnamon (a low sugar recipe) Makes about 9 cups
10 cups fresh blueberries (washed and any stems removed)
2 cups raw cane sugar
2 cups splenda (if you don't want to use splenda use 4 cups raw cane sugar)
1 packet sure gel low sugar jam
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice

Rinse blueberries and place into a heavy bottom pot (I used a 5 qt pot) and add in 1/4 cup of white sugar mixed with the package of pectin and lemon juice. Slowly bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Once boiling add in splenda and remaining sugar and cinnamon all at once. Keep stirring constantly and bring back to a rolling boil. Boil for one minute and then remove from heat and place into sanitized mason jars (fill up to a 1/2 inch from the top of the jar - this is where a jar funnel comes in super handy) . Carefully wipe off any spills and place lids and rings on the jars. Use your tongs and place filled jars back into the large pot of hot water, bring to a boil and let boil for 10 minutes. Remove jars with the tongs and let dry on a cooling rack undisturbed overnight. Label your jars and give them to all those people you love :)

I could eat that with a spoon and nothing else! I would get in on the jam exchange but I'm afraid someone is going to get a cat's hair in theirs and be totally grossed out. Sometimes it shows up in the most unwanted of places.

LOL I totally understand that! My old roomie had two cats and I was always worried too!
