“Sounds good!”
4 half pint jars

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash 4 half-pint jars. Keep hot until needed. Prepare lids as manufacturer directs.
  2. Combine the blueberries, sugar, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest (add Grand Marnier after the 2 minute boil) in a large, nonaluminum pot. Bring to a full, rolling boil over high heat and boil hard for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the Grand Marnier, if using, and pectin. Note: as the heat builds towards a rolling boil, I press the blueberries on the sides of the pot to release the juices.
  3. For long-term storage at room temperature, ladle hot jam into 1 hot jar at a time, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Wipe jar rim with a clean, damp cloth. Attach lid. Fill and close remaining jars. Process in a boiling-water canner for 10 minutes (for 15 minutes at 1,000 to 6,000 feet; for 20 minutes above 6,000 feet).
  4. For storage in refrigerator or freezer, place in plastic freezer containers or glass jars, cover with tight-fitting lids and refrigerate or freeze.
