The Deen Bros. Lighter Lemon-Blueberry Jam
49 Fewer Calories
12 g Less Sugar
4 cups blueberries
1 (1 3/4-oz) package powdered low-sugar fruit pectin
1 3/4 cups sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
Prepare four (1/2-pint) jars with lids and bands according to manufacturer’s directions.
Coarsely mash the blueberries with a vegetable masher in a large saucepan. Stir in the pectin and 1/4 cup sugar and bring to a boil. Stir in the remaining sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and ginger until blended. Return the mixture to a rolling boil and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; skim off any foam and cool to room temperature.
Spoon the jam into the prepared jars to within 1/2-inch from the tops. Wipe the jars and rims clean and cover tightly with lids. Let stand at room temperature until set, about 24 hours. Chill up to 3 weeks or freeze in plastic containers for up to 1 year.

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.
