Chilean Blueberry Jam recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 kg of blueberries
  • 500 g of white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Preparation

  1. Wash the blueberries in cold water and remove any impurities without breaking the fruit. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the clean blueberries and cover with sugar, gently stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve and integrate homogeneously, cover with plastic wrap and let rest in the cold for about three hours.
  3. Pour the macerated blueberries into a medium-sized long-handled pot (preferably copper) and add the lemon juice. Gently stir to integrate. Heat over medium-high heat until boiling, then lower the heat and cook for about 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every few minutes until thickened to the desired consistency.
  4. Pour the hot jam into clean and sterilized glass jars, immediately cover and store until consumption time.
  5. Consume the blueberry jam as an accompaniment to bread and desserts. Once opened, keep refrigerated.
