Blueberry Lime Jam

I gobbled up the tiny little jar of jam that I made in the canning class pretty quickly so I got to work on making a batch at home. It was a cinch and required minimal ingredients from the market.

> Squish the berries one layer at a time in a large dish. I used the back of a measuring cup and a pie plate.

> Toss the berries in a pot and add the fruit pectin packet

> Add an obscene amount of sugar, lime juice, and lime zest.

> Lids should be heated in a small pot and jars sterilized in your large pot that you will also use for your water bath. That should all be happening while you make your recipe.

> Stir and Boil. Here the directions say to skim off any foam from the top. Annoying! Thankfully David has the same thoughts about this part of the directions as I do and says we can leave the foam.

> Ladle HOT jam into your sterilized jars. Wipe off the tops, then add your lids and screw bands. You are now ready for a 15 minnute water bath.

>I set my processed jars out on a wooden cutting board and usually within an hour you will hear the lids get sucked in (seal) which makes a little popping noise. We like this sound. It’s the sound of success.
The more precise recipe given to us in class.
