Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 6- to 8-quart heavy pot crush 1 cup of the blueberries with a potato masher. Continue adding berries and crushing until you have 4 cups crushed berries. Stir in lime peel, lime juice, and mint. Stir in pectin.

  • Bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; remove and discard mint. Quickly skim off foam with a metal spoon.

  • Ladle hot jam into hot sterilized half-pint canning jars, leaving a 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids and screw bands.

  • Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 10 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks.


To make it easier to remove the mint, leave a long tail on the string and tie to the handle of the pot.
