I got a welcome surprise of tons and tons of free blueberries from my mom. As good as they are, it’s wrecked havoc on my summer blog schedule. I’m a planner, you see, which means I don’t like surprises.

I have shared several blueberry recipes with you, but couldn’t pass up Blueberry Jalapeno Jam Recipe! Now, you may be intimidated by making jam as I was. Previously, I would not even consider making jelly or jam. This time I had so many blueberries that I couldn’t use them all. Jam was the only solution.

Imagine my surprise to realize how very easy it is to make jams and jellies!!

    Tried this recipe and will double jalapeño next time or maybe chop three together with seeds. Mine came out very mild and I added an extra jalapeño to it. I like the flavor but can only taste a hint of spice.

    1. Please tell me about the pectin,….
      Specifically how much, maybe the brand as well.
      Thank you

    2. Please tell me about the pectin,….
      Specifically how much, maybe the brand as well.
      How long should recipe be water bath boiled for.

      1. update not enough sugar will not set needs more i found use the same recipe as comes with the sure jell and add Jalapenos works great

    I coincidentally picked 4 cups of huckleberries and after a quick google search for “blueberries and jalapeño jam” I found this. I tweaked it a bit but i think it had to do with my inadequate equipment. Cheap pot on a cheap stove, had to wait a long time and stir a lot to get the consistency right. I also added a tinsie bit more of pectin (don’t know why really) I thought doing this would help it stiffen up faster. In the end it turned out great. Will be shipping some of it out to the in-laws.

    I think it should be very straightforward if you have a nice thick cast iron pot like a LeCrusette or something like that and a nice gas stove with evenly distributed heat.

    This recipe turned out fabulous and set perfectly. I left the seeds in from the jalapeños and it has a very nice kick to it. What can you serve it with besides cream cheese and crackers? Any other suggestions!

    1. Use pepper jelly as a glaze on pork or chicken. Not sure how blueberry would be, but pepper jelly glaze is off the chain!
      My husband does a smoked fish dip, of course, on a cracker. A schmear of pepper jelly with any thing like that is good. Really good, what ever flavor.

      1. I’ve made this several times. I sell jellies and Jams . I use strawberry and blackberry with jalapeño as well. All awesome. People are so surprised when I tell them the secret ingredient.

    2. 5 stars
      – Toasted bagel w/ cream Heeeey
      – Turkey, lettuce, onion, jam, mayo, rye bread.

  4. Love this recipe! Excellent combination of Sweet & Hot! Only half of the batch set. Any idea why?
    I put the blueberries through a food chopper before cooking and they broke up much better than trying to crush them.
    I sell Jams & Jellies at local farmers markets and always water bath the filled jars for 10 minutes. It gives an added assurance that they are safe for my family & my customers.

  5. Paula Thank you so much for this recipe. I made it using a combination of jalapeno, red-yellow-orange hot peppers, and habanero. Your recipe was so easy to follow. It came out perfect. Again thank you for sharing. It made 6 1/2 pints.
