Blueberries are probably my favorite type of berry to eat. I just wish they weren’t so dang expensive! Good thing a little goes a long way. This recipe will yield a good 16 ounces of blueberry jam deliciousness!

You can use frozen blueberries in a pinch. I recommend rinsing them in a colander for a few minutes before using them.
