Spiced Blueberry Jam

This spiced blueberry jam is berry-licious. Along with the recipe on how to make freezer jam, there is also a section on how to make the two types of sweeteners (apple-grape and pineapple) that can go into the jam.

Ingredients
  • 7 cups blueberries (or two 12-ounce packages frozen blueberries)
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple-grape concentrate sweetener (see separate recipe)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace
Instructions

Yield: 3 cups.

  1. If using fresh blueberries, wash, drain and remove any bits of stem.
     
  2. In a 4-quart saucepan, combine the berries, apple-grape sweetener, orange juice, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and mace.
     
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium. Cook at a low boil 20 minutes, stirring often, until very thick. (To test for gelling, put about 1/2 teaspoon jam on a chilled saucer and place in freezer for 1 minute. If, when cooled, jam wrinkles when touched, it is done.)
     
  4. Skim the foam from the top of the jam during the cooking time.
     
  5. Ladle into freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Cool, cover and place in freezer.
Notes
  • Apple-Grape Sweetener (yield 2 cups): 12-ounce can frozen apple juice concentrate, defrosted 12-ounce can frozen grape juice concentrate.
     
  • Defrosted Pineapple Sweetener: 12-ounce can frozen pineapple juice concentrate, defrosted

For the apple-grape sweetener:

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the apple and grape juice concentrates.
     
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat slightly and cook at a low boil 15 to 20 minutes.
     
  3. Measure; you should have about 2 cups.
     
  4. Transfer to a jar and cool. Cover and refrigerate.

For the pineapple sweetener:

  1. Pour the pineapple juice concentrate into a medium saucepan.
     
  2. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat slightly, and cook at a low boil 15 to 20 minutes.
     
  3. Measure; you should have about 1 cup. Transfer to a jar and cool. Cover and refrigerate.
  • The sweeteners will have a 2-week shelf life in refrigeration.
