This recipe was formulated especially for Friends Drift Inn Blueberry Jam. We cannot predict how other jams will perform.
For photography, we generally use a thin walled glass to create an appealing image. However, at the big red barn we like cocktail glasses with heft. A thicker walled bourbon cocktail glass is a pleasure to hold and is less likely to tip over on a serving tray. A more substantial bourbon cocktail glass can take the abuse of the dishwasher better than thin fragile ones. Just saying.

Please use a cocktail napkin or coaster. It is classy. It is polite. It will keep those little beads of condensation from dripping on your shirt or making a nasty ring on my furniture.
