Hello children,Mama here,today we are going to make "homemade"
blueberry syrup!
Put your waterbath canner on the stove first thing...
Then you will need a 48-64oz bottle of blueberry juice.Please make
sure it is 100% juice,not the "cocktail" kind.
You pour the juice into a dutch-oven pot then add 1 package of pectin.
You have to use a whip to make sure the pectin is mixed in completely.
In a separate bowl,measure out 6 cups of sugar and set aside.
While this mixture is slowly coming to a boil...Have your jars,lids and
rings washed and kept HOT!
When the mixture comes to a boil,pull off stove and add the sugar.Use
the whip to make sure the sugar is all dissolved.Put pot back on the stove
and bring to a hard boil.Let the syrup boil for a few minutes then ladle
into the jars,wipe around the rims with a clean cloth place the lids and
rings on,set aside.
When you have filled all of your jars,CAREFULLY place into waterbath
canner.For pint size jars,can for 10 minutes,quart size jars,can for 20
minutes.When they are finished running through the canner,remove from
the canner and place the jars ontop of a towel on a countertop.They have
to cool and set for 24 hours.You will periodically hear a pinging sound as
they seal.After they have set,put away in a cupboard or pantry.I hope you
will enjoy the syrup.
PLEASE,when removing the lid off the waterbath canner,remove it away
from your face.

This is a real easy recipe and is great for a beginner
canner or a busy mama.
You can also make jelly the same way by adding 2 boxes
of pectin and adding 2 more cups of sugar.
I use the suregel pectin in the PINK box,you use less sugar!

This sounds good and will go great with my french toast!


I will have to get the ingredients when I go shopping Friday and make it for breakfast this weekend.

Thanks for the recipe!

You can also make "syrup" out of any fruit juice.
Like I said earlier,you can use 2 boxes of pectin
and 2 more cups of sugar and have jelly.

Thank-you for your post.

I will definitely try the jelly too. I love rye bread toast in the morning and that would be good on it!

Do you know if Stevia can be substituted for the sugar in the recipe and if so how much would be used?

I don't know about the stevia,I do know that with splenda
it is cup to cup.If I hear of anything,I will add it to this thread.
