Directions

  1. Combine the blueberries, cherries, oranges, lemon juice, and pectin in a large pot; bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the sugar until it dissolves completely and the mixture returns to a rolling boil; boil 1 minute and remove from heat. Pour into hot, sterilized jars and top with sterilized lids. Secure lids with bands, process for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath. Allow jars to cool slowly, creating a vacuum seal. Allow to sit at room temperature 1 to 2 days to allow jam to set. Refrigerate after opening.

This recipe had me at hello - The name is very clever. THe blueberries, however, seemed to overwhelm the taste of the cherries and the oranges. This is fine if you are extending a recipe - but I was hoping for one where you could taste all the flavors. I added more cherries, 1 TBSP fresh ginger (thinking Asian, as suggested by the Mandarin), and some orange zest. I never would have thought of the pairings on my own, so think Chef RachtheBach is talented.
