Blueberry and Lime Jam

4 cups fresh blueberries

3 limes, juice and zest

1/4 cup water

4 cups sugar

1 envelope liquid pectin


Combine blueberries, juice and zest of limes, and water in a large, heavy pot. 

Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until berries soften and release juices.

Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.

Heat to a boil and cook for about 4-5 more minutes.

Add pectin, and boil for about 2-3 more minutes until thickened.

Remove from heat.

Ladle into sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space and seal.

Process for 10 minutes in a water bath. (Yield: approx 6 1/2-pint jars)

(If you are unsure of the canning process, there are many informative sites online. I am not a canning authority.)
