Directions:

  1. Put the blueberries in a large nonmetallic bowl with half the sugar, the lemon juice, and the salt. Stir to mix, then cover and let stand at room temperature, without stirring, for 5 hours. Meanwhile, put a small plate in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. Pour the contents of the bowl into a large stainless-steel pan over a low heat. Add the remaining sugar and stir until the sugar completely dissolves.
  3. Increase the heat and bring the mixture rapidly to a boil, without stirring, then boil for 10-12 minutes, or until it reaches the setting point. Remove the pan from the heat and test for a set.
  4. With the pan still off the heat, use a large metal spoon to skim the surface. Let the jam cool slightly, then pour it into the prepared jars to within 1/8in (3mm) of the tops and seal. Let the jam cool, then label and date the jars. Store in a cool, dark place until ready to use, then refrigerate after opening.
