Blueberry Thyme Lemon Jam

Blueberry Thyme Lemon Jam Recipe

My mom came to my house to watch my kids while my husband and I went to Antiqua. I made her the biscotti that she loves and thought that it would make her really happy. She loves my biscotti and won’t ask me to make them for her, but I know that she wants me to. I had also just made a few jars of this jam for Dixie Crystals. I didn’t mention it to her, I sort of forgot about it if I am being honest. I didn’t process the jars, so I had two extra jars in the fridge. Fast forward 5 days and Wes and I come home from our trip at 2 am. My mom stumbles sleepily meets us in the hallway to welcome us home, and 2 minutes later, she asks me what exactly is in the jam and can she take the extra jar home with her? She never once mentioned the biscotti. It’s that good you guys.

I love the idea of sweet and savory together, and this jam is a happy marriage. Using a savory herb is the perfect compliment to the blueberries and lemon. There is just enough so that you know that there is thyme in there, but not enough to be overpowering. (Which can be pretty easy to do, especially with rosemary.) I love this jam on toast, but it is amazing with cheese, in a vinaigrette, or made into a pan sauce.

    I love the sweet/savory combo in jams, too. The best jam I’ve ever tried was a strawberry lavender one made by what I presume is someone’s great – grandmother, sold at a local farmer’s market. That was five years ago and it obviously made quite an impression on me. I’ve searched high and low for a similar jam, as I have no idea where that lady and her jars of heaven disappeared to. Your jam might just fill that hole in my heart. 🙂

      That sounds delicious. You could easily try to make that at home. Just go easy on the lavender. If you use too much, it can taste like soap!
