 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    7       c            Blueberries (or two 12-oz
                         Packages frozen blueberries)
      1/2   c            Plus 2 Tbsp apple-grape
                         Concentrate sweetener (see
                         Separate recipe)
    2       tb           Orange juice
    2       tb           Water
      3/4   ts           Ground cinnamon
      1/2   ts           Ground nutmeg
      1/4   ts           Ground cloves
      1/4   ts           Ground mace
 
   1. If using fresh blueberries, wash, drain and remove any bits of stem.
   
   2. In a 4-quart saucepan, combine the berries, apple-grape sweetener,
   orange juice, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and mace.  Bring to a boil
   and reduce the heat to medium.  Cook at a low boil 20 minutes, stirring
   often, until very thick.  (To test for gelling, put about 1/2 teaspoon jam
   on a chilled saucer and place in freezer for 1 minute.  If, when cooled,
   jam wrinkles when touched, it is done.)  Skim the foam from the top of the
   jam during the cooking time.
   
   3. Ladle into freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.  Cool, cover
   and place in freezer.
