Blueberry Preserves

Flavor Profile

Pie by the spoonful! It's like spreadable blueberry pie in a jar. It tastes like a spoonful of summer. Each spoonful pulls your senses to the most glorious blueberry patch during the height of the blueberry season. Children love it, and so do adults. We could have called these preserves, "Maine in a bottle."

Suggestions for Uses

  • Mix blueberry jam into beef gravy for Sunday night's British roast

  • Add it to your tenderloin and wrap it in bacon

  • Oatmeal thumbprint cookies

  • Spoon some over pancakes or waffles

  • Add a dollop of it to a pan sauce for any beef, game, lamb, or duck. Melt it in a saucepan over low heat and add a tad of champagne vinegar for a bit of tartness to balance the sweetness before spooning it over top of a seared sliced duck breast.

  • Stir it into some warm oatmeal for breakfast

  • Roasted fruits and mascarpone: Take some fruits such as berries, peaches, or rhubarb (pre-cook the rhubarb) and place them in a baking dish. Whisk 4-5 tablespoons of mascarpone with 1-2 tbsp of 35% cream (use more mascarpone than cream. The mixture should not be liquid). Spread on top of the fruits and bake/roast in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Then top your dish with the jam.

  • Mix into your crumb bars, cream cheese bars, cake bars, muffins, and coffee cake

  • On top of cheesecake

  • Add to smoothies or milkshakes

  • Top vanilla ice cream as a sauce

  • Baked it in tart shell

  • Add to cakes between-layers filling

  • Pavlova filling

  • Eaton Mess or strawberry fool (instead of the strawberries)

  • Layer in ice cream parfait, yogurts, or banana split

  • Add a layer of jam to breakfast corn muffins: fill muffin cups halfway, add a dollop of jam, then the rest of the batter.

  • Jam Crostata

  • Mix a tablespoon with red wine vinegar for a light and fruity salad dressing
