How To Make Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam

How To Make Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam. Happy Saturday, friends.

So today I have a tasty breakfast jam recipes for you to pop onto your breakfast toast to go with your morning cup of tea.

Also, maybe even a cup of Earls Grey!? Or a great jam topping for any time of the day. Because who does not like a spoonful of jam on their afternoon tea scone too?

How To Make Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam Recipe:

Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam. So yummy!!

This wonderful blueberry jam is also infused with a subtle hint of Earl Grey tea.

It’s made with frozen blueberries (which are often cheaper), although you could use fresh blueberries if you prefer.

Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam:

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes

Makes: 5 x 400g jars


1kg frozen blueberries (or use fresh when in season)

1kg Tate & Lyle Jam Sugar

1 lemon, halved and juiced (there should be 4tbsp in total)

4 Earl Grey teabags, snipped open

How To Make Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam:

1. Place the frozen blueberries in a large saucepan and add the Jam sugar and then add the lemon juice.

Place the squeezed out lemon halves and the leaves from the teabags into the centre of a square of muslin.

Tightly tie with string and add to the pan. Slowly bring to the boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.

2. Cook over a medium heat to boil gently for 10 minutes, then test for setting point.

To Check:

To check, remove the saucepan from the heat, spoon a little onto a refrigerated plate and leave for 2 minutes – it should wrinkle softly when your finger is pushed over the surface.

If this point has not been reached, return the saucepan to the heat and continue to boil for another 2-3 minutes.

Test as before. (You may need to test several times, though be patient, as this testing is crucial to achieve the correct consistency).

3. Turn off the heat and allow the jam to settle for 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, sterilize 5 x 400g clean jam jars by placing them in a low oven at 150°C, fan 130°C, Gas Mark 2 for 10 minutes.

Stir the jam, then pour it into the hot sterilized jars. Seal with the lids. Leave to cool, then label. Last but not least, store in a cool place for up to 1 year.

How To Make Earl Grey’s Blueberry Jam Cook’s Tip:

If you’d rather not have the flavour of Earl Grey tea, simply leave out the tea bags, or use lemon and ginger flavoured tea as an alternative.

    Pinned to my Jam board. I’m excited that this jam is infused with Earl grey. Hope to try it out someday soon. Thanks for posting at Funtastic Friday.

    With only two of us, I make small batch jams regularly. It’s nice to have extras to give away or store.

    My aunt shared Earl Grey tea with me long before Captain Picard ordered a cup from the replicator. (I saw an interview with Patrick Stewart where he admitted his preference for Yorkshire Gold…kinda funny)

    The other recipes sound delicious, too. I’ve pinned your post for future inspiration.

    Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty #ccbg 🙂
