3 Ingredient Blueberry Jam Recipe
There is nothing better than cooking and canning your own food. This easy 3 Ingredient Blueberry Jam Recipe assembles in minutes and lasts a few months in your fridge.
It’s delicious, sweet and has a nice chunky texture.
During my Vermont trip, we stopped by a small rural town near Morrisville to a blueberry farm. It was one of those places where they let you pick your own fruit and pay what you pick.
My mom, daughters and I were having so much fun picking different kinds of blueberries, that without realizing it, we filled up the bucket in no time.
When we got home we had no idea what to do with all those blueberries. My mom suggested pie but I thought it was kind of boring so I called the person who knows best: my grandma.
She told me to make a “confiture” and explained the whole process.
That’s how this yummy 3 Ingredient Blueberry Jam Recipe was created. Basically, a jam is a compote that is cooked for a few more minutes until the mixture thickens and create that beautiful jam consistency.
This Blueberry Jam Recipe is perfect for giving out as gifts, spreading over toast in the morning and as fillings for cookies, cakes, bars and more.
Yesterday I spread a little jam inside my daughters sandwich and asked her if she liked it. She said yes and I said “we made the jelly out of the blueberries we picked” her answer: “oh I thought jelly was made from jelly beans” – That comment right there cracked me up!

3 Ingredient Blueberry Jam Recipe
- 8 oz blueberries
- 8 oz sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice I used mandarin juice
Place the blueberries, lemon juice, and sugar in a saucepan and mix
Cook on medium heat or until the sugar begins to melt. If needed as 1 teaspoon of water
When the mixture starts bubbling, reduce the heat to low and cook until the mixture becomes thicker but still pourable. About 15-20 minutes
Place the jam in boiled jars
Cool and refrigerate

I think it’s interesting that you used mandarin juice for this blueberry jam recipe. That seems like a very different type of juice from lemon or lime. I can see how the flavor from mandarins would taste really good with blueberries. That would be really nice to try with this recipe since I only need blueberries and sugar added with the juice.
Thank you Judy! Let me know how it came out.
Tiffany can you susitute cheeries for the blueberries, with same results
You can Lee, just adjust the sugar since the cherries can be tart
How many jars does this make? Can you water bath can it for a longer shelf life? I am thinking Christmas gifts…
Depending on the size of the jar, 1 or 2 I would say.. So triple the recipe for Christmas gifts or use smaller jars. Definitely use a water bath to extend the shelf life. Usually mine lasts about 2 weeks in fridge (without the water bath)

I am really enjoying reading all your beautiful Jam recipes. In the Blueberry recipe, what are the little flecks I see in the jam? Did you add blackberries or strawberries? I am going to try this tomorrow. Thanks.
They’re blueberry skins!
Hi! How long will these keep unopened? Do I have to store in the frig if unopen?
Can I substitute Stevia for sugar
You may, use only “half” the quantity of sugar in the recipe.
