This is the end! The end of what you wonder? Well, you don’t need to fret, I am talking about the blueberry season. Yes I agree, it’s a pity but fortunately we can look forward to next year’s blueberry season and until then you can save this How to pick wild blueberry guide, so that you are prepared next year to pick the wild bounty in the forests before everybody else does.

For now we are left with a load of fresh blueberries and you will definitely have a few delicious recipe ideas in mind to enjoy them. Let me tell you, there is actually one recipe non of us should miss out on, I am talking about homemade Blueberry Jam a la organic fashion! I mean there is no better way to prolongue the sweet dark purple/blue memories of perfect summers in the woods.

Imagine how wonderful it could be… You wake up early morning to go to work, it’s rainy cold and dark outside, your mood just went downhill but then you remember the blueberry jam and a smile of victory takes over your face. You dip your knife into the dark goodness and spread a small amount of the luscious jam on your bread. You take a bite of bliss and find yourself literally recharging your batteries. Boom-Pow!

This has been my honest experience with blueberry jam, especially in my younger years. Cold unfriendly snowy winters, getting up at 6 am to go to school… and a pot of friendly Blueberry Jam for the soul. Food which brings hope and inspiration, something we all dearly need in this world.

Imagine waking up in the morning to a sweet blueberry jam breakfast. Are you tempted? Make this recipe and get a good start into the day!
Ingredients
For the Jam:
  • 1 kg fresh Blueberries preferably organic
  • 800 grams crystal Sugar
You will also need:
  • a few drops of rum to disinfect
  • about 3-4 (300-350 ml) Jam jars and lids
  • labels
Instructions
  1. Wash your blueberries and pick-out/discard any impurities. Learn more about how to pick wild blueberries. Weigh your fresh Blueberries and place them into a cooking pot. Blueberry Jam Organic {Recipe with 2 ingredients} www.masalaherb.com
  2. Add the whole sugar amount to the fruits and mix well. Blueberry Jam Organic {Recipe with 2 ingredients} www.masalaherb.com
  3. Place the pot with the sugar and fruits on the stove and keep a low heat at all times.
  4. Cook slowly for about 45 minutes and stir sometimes. Then bring to a rolling boil as shown in the second picture. At that point the blueberry jam should be ready and you can take it from the heat to cool for 5 minutes. You can just test if the jam is ready by placing a few drops of the jam on a cold plate. The jam is ready if it's not running, if the opposite is the case, just keep it to cook for some more time and repeat the test. Blueberry Jam Organic {Recipe with 2 ingredients} www.masalaherb.com
  5. Before we fill the clean jam jars with the blueberry jam, place a few drops of rum into the lid. The rum will kill any mold growth. Blueberry Jam Organic {Recipe with 2 ingredients} www.masalaherb.com
  6. Fill your clean jam jars with the blueberry jam, close well with the lids and turn them upside down. Keep them upside down for a few hours and then store them in a dry and cool place away from any sun. I suggest to store jam in a tropical climate in the fridge. Enjoy.

I have prepared a little bonus for you my dear reader as promised. I want to say thank you, because you are the one who drives this food and travel blog each and every single day. Therefore, I have designed unique blueberry jam labels for your jars and not just in English but also in German and French. Just pick your language, click on the download link below and print the labels on a full sheet label or just a plain white A4 size sheet (you can cut out the labels and stick them individually on the jars with glue). Each page has about 24 individual labels, so you should be covered for a few blueberry kgs in the future. I hope you like them =)

Those labels are terrific! As is the recipe. ;-) We’ve been having a wonderful blueberry season this year. Haven’t made jam yet, though. But we will. ;-) And the rum trick is a really good tip.

Hi, Helene! Thank you for the beautiful jam labels. (I’m sharing half of them with my sister.) Your earlier blueberry picking post was a delight, and now homemade jam is a tasty reward for your efforts. Nice how that works out. :)

What gorgeous labels, they are so pretty :D
But not as delicious as your organic jam, so need this on some sourdough!

Cheers

I’m on my last jar of blueberry jam made from wild Maine blueberries. So far I’ve made blueberry and cream cheese danish and covered a lot of toast. Your jam looks wonderful.

How I wish the berries are abundant over here. I can still buy but pretty expensive though. Still, the jam with it is simply gorgeous and yes, organic.

This is so lovely Helene, and I love how there’s just two ingredients. I love blueberry jam and this is a great way to keep blueberries appearing all through the winter months when they are much more difficult to source. I imagine this jam would be wonderful smeared on some Sunday morning pancakes xx

It’s been years I haven’t had REAL blueberry jam (not the one made of big fruits). You have made me dream…

I know what you mean – there’s nothing like homemade jam, especially blueberry jam to turn a cloudy day into sunshine. Oh…to be able to pick my own blueberries! Bet they make the most awesome jam!!! I can taste it now.

I love blueberries and eat 2 cups of blueberries everyday if I can during the summer. I don’t get tired of it. What a nice way to preserve the fresh blueberries! And it’s easy!
