No Sugar Refrigerator Blueberry Jam

I love jam!! I put jam on whole grain toast, mix it into oatmeal, use it in various desserts and as an ice cream topping.  Here is a delicious recipe for blueberry jam using Agave as a sweetener and no canning is necessary!  This recipe makes about a cup and a half of jam.  It will keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks – watch it for mold.  This jam could not be ANY easier to make!!  I adapted this recipe from A Single Mom Cooks Vegan.image

Ingredients

  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup agave
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon

Directions

1. Mix all ingredients in large, deep pan.

2. Bring to a boil.

3. Lower heat to simmer and let simmer uncovered for approximately 2 hours.

4. To test if jam is done: Place a teaspoon in the freezer for a few minutes.  Once it is cold, scoop a small amount of the jam from the pan onto the spoon and return to freezer for 3 minutes.  Push jam with your finger to see if it wrinkles up/jiggles (like any good jam should!!).

5. Remove pan from hot stovetop and allow to cool.

6. Store in mason jar or airtight container in the refrigerator.
