Whoot! It’s jam time!! I love jam, but the store bought versions contain a lot of added sugars, which makes them crappy for you! So I made my own again! I already posted a spicy blackberry jam recipe so I decided to make its cousin, especially since I bought a ton of blueberries because they were on sale lol

Plus, it also has a spicy kick to it, which makes the flavour more fun without being overwhelmingly noticeable. This is also very easy to make so don’t be turned off, think of it as boiled fruit πŸ˜‰

Recipe:

3 cups organic fresh blueberries
2 cups organic unsweetened apple sauce
3 organic medjool dates (pitted and mashed)
1/4 tsp smokey paprika

Place pitted dates in the microwave with 1 tbsp of water and heat up for 1 minute. Mash dates with a fork when ready.

Place dates and remaining ingredients in a skillet over medium-low heat and let it cook for 40 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes.

When ready, let jam cool for 10 minutes before transferring into sterilized mason jars.

Store in the refrigerator or freezer. Keeps for a couple months when stored in the freezer and about 1 month when stored in the refrigerator.
