Xmas Present No.1 – Tangy Blueberry Vanilla Jam

This is a great thrifty present idea, delightful, delicious, and much easier than you think. It’s a bit more effort than a voucher but people love home made gifts.

TANGY BLUEBERRY VANILLA JAM

10 cups frozen blueberries (I get them from Aldi, they’re great and cheap)

1 cup sugar

juice of 1 lemon

Pinch of salt

Vanilla essence

Put everything in a pot, mash the blueberries up a bit with a potato masher, and cook for about 35 minutes, or until thick.

Here’s a trick to tell if the jam will set:

Put a plate in the freezer, drop some jam on it, put it back in the freezer for 1 minute, and if it forms a skin it should set fine!

This recipe yields about this much:
