  2. Freshness and Flavor - Homemade jam captures the freshness and essence of ripe fruits. The flavors are more vibrant, and the texture is often superior to commercial products.

  4. Reduce Food Waste - Homemade jam is an excellent way to use up excess fruit that might otherwise go to waste. You can preserve the harvest and enjoy it throughout the year.
  5. Creative Expression - Making jam is a creative process. You can experiment with different fruits, spices, and even teas to create unique and personalized flavors.

  • 1 pack Pect
  • 1 tbspn lemon juice
  • 2 cups sugar


  • Prepare the Blueberries: Rinse the blueberries thoroughly and remove any stems or leaves. Remove the excess water
  • Brew the Tea: While the blueberries are drying, brew a strong tea using Teabloom's Berry Harvest loose leaf tea. Allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes.
  • Cook the Jam: Transfer the blueberries to a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir frequently to prevent sticking or burning.
  • Add the lemon juice and desire amount of sugar. Add the pectin.
  • Test for Set: After about 15-20 minutes of simmering, test for the jam's set by placing a small amount on a cold plate. If it wrinkles when pushed with your finger, it's ready. If not, continue cooking and retest every few minutes.
  • Jar the Jam: Once the jam reaches the desired set, remove it from heat. Carefully pour it into sterilized jars, leaving about 1/4-inch headspace. Seal the jars while they are still hot.
  • Cool and Store: Allow the jars to cool completely at room temperature. As they cool, you should hear the lids pop, indicating a proper seal. Store the sealed jars in a cool, dark place.
