Spiced Blueberry Jam

Someone shared this with me sometime back and I never got around to making it until last night.  I was a little skeptical due to the unusual ingredients but since they were all familiar and I  had them readily available why not try it.   I was truly amazed how wonderful it turned out, Kenny loved it as well.

6 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

One  packet liquid pectin

1/4 teaspoon star anise, ground fine

10 to 20 grinds fresh nutmeg (or 1/4 teaspoon pre-ground)

2 tablespoons lemon juice

5 tablespoons (2 1/2 ounces) cider vinegar

3 cups sugar

1/2 cup water


Place blueberries in saucepan over medium-low heat. Add
liquid pectin followed by the anise, nutmeg, lemon juice and vinegar. Once
liquid starts to gather in bottom of pan, increase the heat to high and bring
to a boil. Lower heat slightly and boil gently for five minutes occasionally
mashing mixture. Mash in sugar, add the water and return to a boil for 1
minute. You just made jam.

Jar and process for 5 minutes.
