  1. Stir sugar and blueberries together in a bowl; let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir lemon juice and pectin together in a separate small bowl; add to blueberry mixture. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the blueberry into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/2 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours until set.
  4. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator.

I chose to use the low-sugar pectin in this recipe which reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup. Other than that, I kept to the recipe exact. Very nice blueberry freezer jam--I'm glad I cut the sugar back...

Tastes just like blueberries, as freezer jam should. But moistening the pectin with lemon juice and then stirring it in is ludicrous - it will form lumps and you'll still be stirring when next ...

Way too much sugar! I was planning on making a low sugar jam so when I doubled the recipe I only used 6 cups of sugar, 4 cups blueberries. I'm so glad I did because the sugar never dissolved. I ...

The recipe says to mix 2 T lemon juice with 1 pkg of pectin in a separate bowl...DO NOT DO THIS!!!!!! The lemon and pectin together created a ball of blob that congealed and could not be mixed ...

It never did set up for me. The sugar seemed to settle at the bottom of the jar. My sugar never did dissolve all the way. Stirring the lemon juice and pectin together was pretty much impossible....
