Easy Nectarine Blueberry Freezer Jam

Prep Time15 mins
Servings: 3 Half Pints
Author: Tricia


  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons instant powdered pectin (I used Ball)
  • 3 1/2 cups small diced nectarines (do not peel)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
  • dash of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries


  • Combine the sugar and pectin in a large mixing bowl.  Add the nectarines, lemon juice, cinnamon, and vanilla bean paste.  Stir to combine, then continuing stirring for 3 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved.  Gently fold in the wild blueberries.
  • Spoon the jam into jars leaving a 1/2 inch space at the top to allow for expansion when frozen. Seal and set aside for 30 minutes before freezing.
  • Jam will stay delicious for up to 1 year in the freezer or 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
