      Spicy Blueberry Jam

      2 pints blueberries
      1/2 C. red wine vinegar
      3 C. sugar
      1/4 t.

      EACH: nutmeg, cinnamon and mace
      1/8 t. cloves

      Wash and stem the berries. Place with the vinegar in a four-quart
      saucepan over medium heat. When juice starts to form, increase heat
      slightly, and stir often until mixture boils.

      Boil steadily about 10
      minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.

      Remove from heat and measure. You should have about 3 3/4 cups. If
      necessary, add water to fill to 4-cup mark.

      Return mixture to pan.

      Combine sugar and spices in a bowl. Bring fruit mixture to a boil over
      medium heat. Add sugar and spices all at once, and stir until jam boils
      again.

      Adjust heat so jam boils steadily for 5 to 15 minutes, stirring
      to prevent sticking. When it’s done, remove from heat and ladle into
      hot, sterilized jars. Label and store a week or so for flavors to
      mellow.

      Makes about 5 cups.
