Blueberry Jam Video

Here at Pomona's, we were impressed with Vanessa Vargas Wilson's Blueberry Jam video. In the video, she teaches how to make Low-Sugar Blueberry Jam with Pomona's. We think it is worth sharing -- thanks Vanessa!

There is one thing we do differently from Vanessa in regard to jar filling and processing. We fill a jar, put the lid on, and set it aside until all the jars are ready. Then we add them all together to the boiling water in the canner. As soon as the water gets back to a rolling boil, set the timer for the proper processing time. The reason for this is that if the pectin is exposed to heat for too long, it will break down and won't be able to jell the jam.

    Thanks so much for featuring my video! Great tip for the processing. I will definitely do it your way next time especially when I make larger batches that take me more than a couple of minutes to fill. Thanks!
