- 4 pints blueberries - rinsed and drained
- ½ cup water
- 3 cups sugar
Wash and pick over the blueberries. Measure out the berries into a heavy
pot. Once the bottom of the pot is covered, crush the berries in the bottom layer.
Add 1/2 cup water, and simmer the blueberries until they are soft. When the fruit is soft, add the sugar and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Bring the mixture to a boil continuing to stir, making sure no sticking occurs. Reduce the heat and cook, uncovered over low heat until a small amount dropped on a plate will stay in place. Place in hot sterilized jars.
Makes approximately 6 cups
