DH doesn’t like jam, but this recipe was in Simply in Season so I had to make it. I’m glad I did! Blueberry Raspberry Jam is summer in a jar.

The Verdict: I almost didn’t get to make this recipe until next year; blueberry season was really short this year in Michigan. I managed to snag some though and made this recipe. In the past I thought that blueberry jam was too sweet, bland. This is the perfect mix of tart and sweet. Plus I really like the raspberry seeds–makes it seem authentic. Oh wait, it is! Between this and the strawberry freezer jam I made earlier this summer, I should be all set.

I love making jam for my family. Last year I made grape jelly. This year I have tons of raspberries I will have to look at the local farmers fruit stand and see if I can get some blueberries. Thank you for sharing. New follower from the dessert linky party. Hope you stop by for a visit.
