Blueberry Lemon JamMADE BY REPUBLIC OF JAM IN CARLTON, OREGON
This summery spread is packed with whole blueberries, while lemon juice and zest add a perfect citrus-y zing. It's the next best thing to eating handfuls of blueberries straight from the basket.
The awesome artisan jams from the Republic of Jam start out with fruit grown in the Willamette Valley. They're preserved using (always vegan-friendly) fruit pectin and half the sugar of traditional recipes, letting their fresh fruit flavors shine through. They've earned our vote of confidence. How about yours?

This not-too-sweet jam makes an amazing topping for vanilla or lemon ice cream, but when we're feeling extra fancy, we use it to fill puff pastry hand pies (tip: buy all-butter puff pastry in the freezer aisle of most well-stocked grocery stores. It tastes almost as good as homemade for a tiny fraction of the labor).
