Blueberry Freezer Jam

I love blueberries, and will often pick gallons of them at local orchards every summer, eating some straight away, and freezing the rest so that I can later make yummy treats, like this recipe for blueberry freezer jam. Although this jam is not shelf-stable (i.e., should be stored in the freezer), it is incredibly easy to make and does make a delicious jam. I love adding the jam to my oatmeal, using it as a topping on sorbet or ice cream, or slathered on a slice of freshly baked bread. Enjoy!


  • 5 Cups of Fresh/Frozen Blueberries
  • 2 Cups of Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Ball Freezer Jam Instant Pectin
  • 3 - 12oz Freezer-safe canning jars


  1. Wash berries, then place them in a shallow pan. Using a potato masher, crush berries.
  2. Add the mashed berries to a saucepan, and add sugar. Mix well, and bring to a boil, cooking at full boil for around a minute.
  3. Remove jam from heat and stir in the pectin, mixing well.
  4. After jam has cooled a bit, scoop the jam into small freezer-safe jars. Top with lids after 30 minutes, and then place in freezer. Use within one year. Enjoy!
