Jackson-Triggs Reserve Merlot & Wild Blueberry Jam
Recipe Date:
November 3, 2021
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 6 cups Wild Blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups Jackson-Triggs Reserve Merlot
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 tsps Vanilla or 1 Vanilla Bean, Seeds Scraped
  • 2 tbsps Corn Starch
  • 2 tbsps Cold Water

Wash the blueberries in cold water and be sure all stems are removed. Place a large pot over medium high heat and add Jackson-Triggs Reserve Merlot, sugar and vanilla. Bring to a simmer then add in the blueberries. Cook until the berries just begin to burst (this will take roughly 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.
