I made this and have given it to some friends and co-workers of mine, they all said that it was some of the best blueberry preserves they have ever tasted! I have not yet opened a jar yet myself, I still have some of my other jams and jellies that I made open, but I did taste it as I made it and I agree that it did taste wonderful!
