Blueberries I loved as a child. I remember how we with my father and brothers left for the summer in the Tver region. We lived there for a cottage.

Every morning for breakfast we had a blueberry with fresh milk. I remember, drools. For blueberries went into the woods. Pope collected in a bucket, and my brothers into the mouth.

Home back to blue lips, bitten by mosquitoes, but happy. Blueberries, that we did not have time to eat, Dad sent in a large bucket, fill with sugar and boiled jam. So we came back from leave empty-handed.

Today's recipe is the same recipe from my childhood that I'm a little adapted to modern realities. Now I add less sugar and jam can be safely stored without refrigeration.

What to look for:

Foam from blueberry jam is very dark and it is difficult to distinguish from the main mass. I stir the mass of a spoon, and then the foam adheres to the edges of the pan.
Hot jam has a liquid consistency. At cooling mass will thicken.
Jam when cooking foams and expands. That the mass does not boil dry, it is better to use a large pot.
