  • 1 cup apple juice or grape juice
  • 4-5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package Bernardin No Sugar Needed Pectin 49 grams

  1. Zest 2 of the limes and finely chop it..Squeeze all of the juice from the 3 limes.

  2. Crush the blueberries well. I use potato masher on mine.
  3. Add the berries to a medium sized saucepan along with the pectin, lime juice and apple juice. (NOT THE SUGAR OR LIME ZEST YET).

  4. Bring this mixture to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add the sugar and lime zest and boil hard for another 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove from heat and bottle according to the jars manufacturers instructions, including processing in a water bath. You'll find a link to the Bernardin Guide in the recipe notes.

Recipe Notes

To bottle/can your jam correctly and safely, please refer to the Bernardin Step by Step Guide here

If you prefer not to add the lime flavour, this jam is easily made without it. Just use lemon juice instead and leave out the zest altogether.
