The sweet summery goodness of Blueberries, the tangy taste of lemon and the sweet spiciness of basil combines in this gorgeous and very delicious jam. Blueberry Lemon Basil Jam will quickly become a favorite!
Our garden has been over flowing with blueberries this summer, so we set out to do some canning to preserve some. This wonderful Blueberry Lemon Basil Jam was born by our overabundance of these blueberries and our basil which is also growing like a weed.
I love canning so I was pretty excited to find out that was our theme this week for #SundaySupper. Our garden is overflowing with vegetables this year and I know we will be canning a lot of it.
This year we added three blueberry bushes to the mix, and have not been disappointed.
We wound up with so many blueberries I was actually afraid we would not be able to use them all up. So we’ve been freezing a lot of them, but I’ve also been making jams.
This Blueberry Lemon Basil Jam is our favorite we’ve made so far this year. So full of flavor and tastes great on toast, waffles, bagels, sandwiches and even smothering a grilled chicken breast! Soooo good!
