While on a quick errand to Longos so I could pick up one thing, I couldn't help but notice the New Jersey blueberries on sale at the front entrance. $5.99 for a container weighing 2 lbs (907 grams) was a pretty good price considering my inability to find a local fruit farm.
Now I realize these aren't local berries since they come from south of the border, but this is as good as it's going to get. I'm making jam and working with what's available.
I picked up 4 containers, washed up the 8 pounds of blueberries as soon as I got home, added 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water and let them simmer for just over a couple of hours.
This jam tastes even better than yesterday's strawberry jam.
