Flavours of lush wild blueberries, rich Merlot and hints of vanilla fall beautifully into place in this decadent jam. It's a fantastic accompaniment to your charcuterie and cheeseboards, but also is a flavour booster for your tomato sauces, vinaigrettes and marinades.
  • 6 cups wild blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups Jackson-Triggs Reserve Merlot
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsps corn starch
  • 2 tbsps cold water

Wash blueberries in cold water and be sure to remove all stems. Place a large pot over medium-high heat and add Jackson-Triggs Reserve Merlot, sugar and vanilla. Bring to a simmer then add in blueberries. Cook until the berries just begin to burst; this will take approximately 15 minutes. Mix cornstarch with cold water into a smooth paste in a small bowl. Pour into the simmering berries and stir immediately. Continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes, then pour into prepared (sterilized) jam jars. 

Suggested serving tips: 

  • Serve alongside charcuterie and cheese and pair with Jackson-Triggs sparkling wine.
  • Add a dollop into a rich tomato-based ragu for a hint of unexpected sweetness. 
  • Mix a teaspoon to your vinaigrette and then toss with tender salad greens and goat cheese, and pair with Pinot Noir. 
  • Use it as a marinade with fresh herbs and red wine for white meat, such as pork, and then pair with Rosé. 
  • Serve warm over pancakes or waffles.
