It’s so easy to make this Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam that’s tart and delicious. It takes just a few ingredients with no pectin necessary!
Well, the weather is finally warming up little by little and I couldn’t be more excited for it to be fully in Spring mode when it comes to produce. I even saw strawberries at the farmers market over the weekend and I can’t wait for all the other various berries to come out and play. But while we are still in between seasons, I decided to whip up some yummy jam using my favorite fruit, blueberries, and a winter fruit that’s almost out of season, oranges.
Blueberries weren’t out yet the last time I checked, so I used frozen blueberries to make this Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam and it turned out so tart and fabulous. And with this recipe, you don’t even need to use pectin, which usually contains GMO corn that I would rather avoid if possible.
So you ready to start jammin’? This clean guilt-free jam is sweetened just with fruits and honey, and because it doesn’t use pectin, you have to cook it down much longer than a regular jam. The result is so thick but spreadable, and the combination of flavors from the blueberries and oranges is so tart and delicious
This Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam isn’t canned, so it’s better to make a small batch at a time and store it in the refrigerator or freezer. It makes about a cup of jam and lasts about 3 weeks in the fridge, so you have plenty of time to eat it on your favorite crackers, toast, pancakes, waffles, ice cream, yogurt, or any kind of creamy dessert. I bet it’s even yummy with some cheese like brie if you can do dairy.
However you want to eat it, it’s a delicious sweet condiment to have around if you are looking for a fruity treat!
