Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Servings 3 half pints


  • 2 pounds fresh blueberries (about 4 cups)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • Prepare your jars and lids as per proper water bath canning procedures.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a wide, heavy bottomed jam pot or sauce pan. Bring to boil over medium high heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir frequently to keep the bottom from burning.
  • Remove the pan from heat, and transfer the berry mixture to a blender (in batches if necessary). Puree until smooth. Return the syrup to the pot and bring to boil again, letting it reduce 2-3 minutes longer.
  • Transfer the mixture to the sterilized jars with ½ inch of headspace. Process in a water bath at 15 minutes and let stand overnight for best results.
