Taste of Cyprus Local Food Blueberry marmalade

Blueberry marmalade

By Andreas Kavazis


  • 1 kg of blueberries
  • 1 kg of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice


Step 1:

Put the blueberries and sugar in a bowl and press them with a spoon to remove the juice. Pour them into a saucepan along with the ginger and boil for 20 minutes until the mixture binds. While boiling, mix continuously with a wooden spoon to keep from sticking. Add the lemon juice shortly before moving from fire.

Step 2:

To know when the marmalade is ready, pour some on a saucer and leave it in the refrigerator to cool down. Then pull a line with your finger, if the line does not close and remains stable then it means that it is ready.

Step 3:

Put the marmalade in sterilized jars, let it cool, and store in the refrigerator.
