This vibrant jam recipe is the perfect way to preserve a bounty of summer blueberries and enjoy long after their season is over. The fresh ginger adds a delightful pop of flavor, but isn’t overpowering. Serve your homemade blueberry jam on a hearty slab of toast, spooned over warm biscuits or pancakes, or alongside a wheel of Brie.
