Blueberry Jam

Here is another canning recipe to add to your repitoire.
Its always good to have a few of these things on hand.
It is best to use fresh blueberries.
SHHHH!
Don't tell anyone, but I used frozen blueberries
I got them last season and I am just now making jam.
I know, I know I am a procrastinator!
When I picked these, things were a bit hectic, so I put them in the freezer.
I then did what I normally do, promptly forgot about them
Until now.
So enjoy these yummy blueberries with your toast or biscuit.
