"A very fresh and summerly jam. The sage goes well together with the blueberries and the ginger add a splash or spicy freshness. This blueberry jam is flavored with fresh sage and freshly grated ginger. In this method I use Dr. Oetker's "Gelling Sugar", which already contains pectin. The "Extra Gelling Sugar 2:1" reduces the amount of needed sugar by half of the fruit weight. This makes the jam not too sweet and very fruity and fresh."

Step 1

In a large suited pot add blueberries, lemon juice and gelling sugar. Mash the blueberries as you like (I like to have to have the blueberries coarsly mashed).

Step 2

Bring the mixture to a boil. Then add ginger and sage sprigs. Let boil for anoter 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove sage sprigs.

Step 3

Fill into twist off preserving jars and close jars. Let stand for 1 minute and then turn up side down. Let stand for 10 minutes and turn over again. Let cool completely.

NOTE on sage sprigs: I use fresh sprigs of sage, which make about 30 young leaves. I bind the sprigs together, so that they can easily be removed. Depending on how strong the flavor is, you may need less or more (to taste)
