{Homemade Blueberry Jam Recipe - Sweetened with RAW HONEY}

I love homemade jam but don't love all the sugar that goes into making it. So I decided to come up with a jam that is sweetened with local raw honey. It is still a sweetener but doesn't have the same bad effects on the body as white processed sugar does.  I really like this jam on toasted Rudi's multi-grain gluten free bread along with a little coconut butter.  

**Keep checking back for a recipe I just came up with for Almond Flour Rounds. They are absolutely delicious toasted with a little bit of this jam on top.

Blueberry Jam

4 cups frozen blueberries
1 ½ teaspoons lemon Juice
½ teaspoon lemon peel
2 tablespoons local raw honey

In a medium sized pot add the frozen blueberries and turn on to medium heat. Let the blueberries thaw; stir occasionally for about 8-10 minutes.

Once the blueberries are thawed add the lemon juice, lemon peel, and honey. Mix together; then with a potato masher mash the blueberries just a bit.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn down to medium heat and let lightly boil for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Now turn the heat down to a simmer for another 5-10 minutes, until mixture is nice and thick.

Let cool for 10 minutes, then pour into a mason jar and refrigerate until completely cooled..
Keep refrigerated.
