Strawberry & Blueberry Jam

Blueberry Week continues!

Well I obviously had to do something with our piles of blueberries, and one of my favorite things to make is jam!  I was a bit disillusioned with the amount of blueberries I would need to make pure blueberry jam (basically everything we had picked for just 6 jars), so I decided to make a combination of blueberry and strawberry.  I took my classic strawberry jam recipe and adjusted it for 60% strawberries and 40% blueberries.  Here's my recipe:

3 cups crushed strawberries (I sometimes use a blender if I'm feeling lazy, but make sure you do in very small amounts and only for a few seconds.  If you blend it too much your jam will end up a soupy mess.)
2 cups crushed blueberries
7 cups sugar
1 box Sure-Jell


Follow your typical canning instructions (sterilize jars and all that good stuff).  Combine your fruits and pectin and bring to a full rolling boil, then add your sugar and boil again for 1 minute.  Process your jars of jam for 10 minutes.  I got ten 8 oz jars with this recipe.


It's very sweet, but that's just how I like it!  Check back tomorrow for a great way to use this jam!
