    4      C             Blueberries -- rinsed and drained
      1/2  C             Water
    3      C             Sugar
 
 Thaw berries if frozen. Wash and pick over the blueberries. Measure out
 the berries into a heavy pot.
 
 Once the bottom of the pot is covered, crush the berries in the bottom
 layer. Add the remaining blueberries.
 
  Add 1/2 cup water, and simmer the blueberries until they are soft. When
 the fruit is soft, add the sugar and stir until the sugar is completely
 dissolved.
 
 Bring the mixture to a boil continuing to stir, making sure no sticking
 occurs. Reduce the heat and cook, uncovered over low heat until a small
 amount dropped on a plate will stay in place.
 
 Place in hot sterilized jars.
 
 Makes approximately 6 cups.

 NOTES : This makes a jam that has less sugar and more flavor than jams
        made with added pectin.
