  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 small habanero pepper
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon fruit pectin not instant!


  • In a medium bowl, crush the blueberries with the back of a large spoon. Pour into a medium saucepan.
  • Cut the habanero pepper in half and remove the seeds ( you might want to wear plastic gloves, or make sure to wash your hands WELL after handling!). Dice fine. It should equal about 1 tablespoon, if you have much more reserve it for another use.
  • Add the diced habanero to the saucepan along with the blueberries, add enough water to just cover the blueberries, then stir in the sugar and fruit pectin. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes, stirring often.
  • Purée using an immersion blender, or carefully pour the hot liquid into a blender or food processor and purée. Allow to cool slightly, then pour into containers, cover, and refrigerate until chilled.
