May DIY – Freezer Jam

Still working on my list of 12 DIY Projects to Try in 2011. Here’s the tally so far:

Jewel and I found some blueberries at the Farmer’s Market last week, and decided it was time to give this a try.

(This image is not mine, but rather was borrowed from an interesting blueberry article on the Projo Fitness Blog, about which I know nothing else)

First we had to go out for supplies – pectin, and some jars and lids (since the only canning jars I’ve scrounged second-hand so far are big ones). We went ahead and bought cute “quilted glass” jars typical for jam.

Things were literally as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Mash the blueberries

2. Stir them together with pectin and sugar, and

3. Spoon into jars.

Since we used the Instant Pectin there was no cooking, nor any “canning” processing.

We got just over two jars’ worth of jam from the recipe, so we put the two full ones in the freezer and ate up the remainder!

There’s Jewel with our creation at the top of the post… Sorry for the squint, it’s pretty sunny here right now…
