  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 mins
  • Yield: 2 1/2 cups of jam 1x


A simple homemade blueberry jam, naturally sweetened and no fillers.


  • 45 cups wild blueberries or regular blueberries
  • 1 cup of applesauce (organic + unsweetened, or make your own)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup (or more to taste) sucanat or coconut sugar


  1. In a pot, combine berries, applesauce, lemon juice and sugar of choice.
  2. Bring to a boil while stirring (uncovered).
  3. Reduce to a simmer, uncovered, and continue to stir occasionally.
  4. Leave it to cook down to about 1/3–1/4 of its original volume (around 45 minutes). It will thicken as it cools.
  5. Once you are close to desired consistency, have a taste and add more sweetener if needed.
  6. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the fridge once cooled.
  7. Will keep in the fridge unopened for two weeks, once open, consume within 8–10 days. Keeps in the freezer for months!
