Homemade Blueberry Jam

blueberry jam, homemade blueberry jam, blueberry jelly, blueberry, homemade jamBoy… I have a treat for ya today!

I have been battling with my self, whether or not I should attempt making my own Jam.

Blueberry jam that is…

I think I told you more than once, that I lovvvveeee me some Boo-berries (A.K.A Blueberries). I mean whats not to love…? They are delicious and nutritious! Did you know, that they are also  high in antioxidants?  Its a shame, when winter comes around those little blue pearls become scarce. Sad, I know… 

This is why we need to take full advantage of what is left of summer!!!

Ok…back to this jam business …

Many  jams out there are made with loads of granulated sugar. Sometimes they can be way to sugary . To be frank with you, I can’t stand overly-sweetened anything.  I thought, wait… what if I use agave nectar instead of white sugar? The great thing about agave is that a little goes a long way.  Fresh blueberries are a must. After many trial and errors, I succeeded in my first homemade jam.

I know it sounds pretty intimidating, but I pinky promise it is simple. I hope I motivate you to try it out.

I am not going to lie, this here is freaking awesome.

Love Amy
