Spiced Blueberry Jam with Pinot Noir

by Michaela

If you like blueberries but you are tired of the classic jams, you need to try this one! Blueberry Jam with Pinot Noir, cinnamon, allspice, and star anise is a little pleasure in a jar that will make you happy every breakfast you eat it.

Blueberries are my favorite summer fruit and they are also kind of symbol of summer and holidays. When I was a kid I used to spend part of the holidays with my family at the cottage in the countryside. Sometimes the weather wasn’t ideal to go for a swim, so we went to the forest to get some blueberries and my mom used to do some tasty treats with it as for example this delicious blueberry jam or the legendary yeast blueberry cake.

In general, I love to make jams during the summer months as there is so much fruit available and I cannot imagine living without the very basic but our favorite Strawberry Jam, Peach Jam with Rum, and now I think that even this Spiced Blueberry Jam with Pinot Noir will become our favorite. 

The jam is not difficult to make, just be aware that you will need to soak the pre-cooked fruit for 24 hours prior to main cooking. Then cook the liquid in order to thicken without overcooking the blueberries. These are only added 5 minutes before the end of the cooking together with spices and wine. Remember also to preheat the glass jars before filling them with the warm jam.

  • 240 ml water
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground star anise
  • 180 ml Pinot Noir

First Day

  1. Place the clean blueberries together with sugar, water, and lemon juice in a larger saucepan, bring to boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool down.

Add the blueberries, spices, and red wine, bring again to boil and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the consistency of the jam is fine (do a test with a drop of the jam on a small plate).

This recipe sounds absolutely incredible. I love blueberry jam, and the addition of the spices and wine can only make it better than it already is. I’ll need to try it for myself, so I’ve pinned it to look back on later!
