  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  1. Add the sugar, lemon juice and zest to a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook and stir the sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.

  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Transfer to 2 pint jars and seal with the lid.
  5. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
