Yield: 3 pints
I prefer my jams to be sugar-free or sugar-less if possible, so lately I have made my recipes to include healthier sugar options, such as agave or honey, and I really like the mild sweetness it produces, and the firm jam that results.
Sugar free jams are notorious for a watery consistency, so this low sweetener version is perfect in taste and texture.
3 pints of blueberries
2 cups of chopped rhubarb
2 limes - zest and juice
1 cup of agave syrup
1 package sugar-free pectin
Chop rhubarb into small pieces, removing outer red layer if it is stringy. Cook over medium high heat for a few minutes to soften.
Add blueberries and 1/2 cup of water, along with zest and juice of limes. Limes and blueberry pair well together so I prefer fresh limes to lemons for this recipe. Stir in pectin.
Bring to a rapid boil and then let boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in agave syrup.
