Once your Blueberry Chardonnay Jam is cooked and has set up, it’s easy to store it for later use. You can keep it in the fridge or freezer, depending on how long you plan to keep it.

If you plan to enjoy the jam within a couple of weeks, just store it in an airtight container in the fridge. You can also place it in a sterilized glass jar and seal it with a lid after cooling it down to room temperature. Always ensure that the container is clean and dry before storing your jam; otherwise, bacteria could proliferate.

If you have more than you can eat in a short time frame, or want to make larger quantities for long-term use, freezing is the best option. Put the jam into a sterilized jar with a tight lid and place it in the freezer. Keeping it well-sealed is crucial because any air contact can cause spoilage.

To reheat frozen jam, let it defrost in the fridge overnight before reheating under low heat while stirring frequently. You may add water to get your desired texture while doing so.

While reheating Blueberry Chardonnay Jam won’t affect its taste or consistency, exposing any unused wine (or other unused ingredients) to air may alter their flavour over time. To ensure its freshness, always store any unused chardonnay wine properly and tightly seal any open containers.

If well stored, homemade jams like Blueberry Chardonnay Jam lasts for at least one year when kept frozen and three weeks when kept refrigerated.

Now that you know how easy it is to store this delicious recipe, feel free to prepare larger batches any time of the year without stress!

To ensure that your Blueberry Chardonnay Jam comes out perfect every time, I have compiled some helpful tips that will make the process a lot smoother.

1. Sanitize Everything: Make sure all of your equipment is cleaned and sanitized before use to prevent any contamination of the jam.

2. Use Fresh Blueberries: When making jam, fresh ingredients are always best. Pick up some fresh blueberries from your local farmer’s market or grocery store for optimal flavor.

3. Measure Accurately: It’s important to follow the recipe and measure out your ingredients accurately to ensure you get the right consistency and flavor for your jam.

4. Use a Wide Pan: When cooking the Blueberry Chardonnay Jam, it’s important to use a wide pan to allow for even cooking and reduce the risk of burning.

5. Adjust Sugar Content: If you prefer a sweeter jam, you can add more sugar to the recipe. However, using too much sugar can cause the jam to become too thick or crystallize.

6. Test for Set: To check if your jam has set, place a small spoonful on a plate and let it cool for 5-10 minutes. If it wrinkles when pushed with your finger, it is ready to be canned.

7. Can Correctly: Follow proper canning procedures to ensure that your jam stays fresh and safe to eat. If you’re unsure about how to can, consult a canning guide or expert.

8. Enjoy and Experiment: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors or pairings with your Blueberry Chardonnay Jam. Try it as a glaze on chicken or spread on toast with butter for a delicious treat!


As with any recipe, you may have some questions about making this Blueberry Chardonnay Jam Recipe. In this section, I will address some of the frequently asked questions to help ensure that you have all the information you need to make the best possible jam. So, put on your chef’s hat, and let’s dive into the world of blueberry chardonnay jam!

Why is my blueberry jam gritty?

If the sugar in your jam has not fully dissolved or you accidentally scraped the sides of the pot when transferring the hot jam into jars, the texture of your jam might have a grainy feel to it.

Should I wash blueberries before making jam?

Before moving on to making the jam, it’s essential to get the fruit ready. Start by cleaning and preparing the fruit, ensuring that there are no stems or leaves left. Additionally, if the fruit is not looking fresh, remove it from the batch. Contrary to what people may believe, using overripe berries won’t result in better jam. Once the fruit is ready, mix it with sugar and lemon juice. This process, called maceration, helps in releasing the fruit’s juices, resulting in a full flavor in the final product.

How can I thicken jam without pectin?

Cornstarch is widely used to add thickness to different food preparations, such as jams, sauces, soups, and glazes. It can particularly come in handy when making jams with fewer sweeteners or when working with fruits that are inherently low in sugar or pectin.

How long does it take for jam to set without pectin?

To make a delightful fruit jam, first, heat the mixture of fruit and sugar. Stir the combination continuously to prevent sticking. As the mixture warms up, it will eventually start boiling. Keep a watchful eye on it and continue stirring as it cooks to prevent any burning. After about 20 minutes of boiling, the fruit mixture should have a thick, jam-like consistency.

Bottom Line

Now that you have all the information you need, it’s time to give this Blueberry Chardonnay Jam Recipe a try. The flavors of blueberries and Chardonnay are a match made in heaven, resulting in a jam that is unique, flavorful, and delicious.
