Master Blueberry Jam

  • 1⁄4 cup pectin
  • 3 cups granulated cane sugar
  • 9 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 1⁄2 cups water

PB&B2 Burger

  • 144 oz 80⁄20 blend ground beef, formed into 3 oz balls
  • 6 tbsp Mortons kosher salt
  • 6 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 48 slices white American cheese
  • 24 King's Hawaiian buns, sliced with hinge attached
  • 3⁄4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1⁄2 cups sliced yellow onion, caramelized
  • 3 cups blueberry jam
  • 24 slices fully cooked bacon


Master Blueberry Jam

  1. In a small bowl, mix pectin with 1 cup of sugar, set aside.
  2. In a large pot, add frozen blueberries and water. Cook blueberries on medium-high heat until boiling, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching.
  3. Add remaining cane sugar into pot. Stir to dissolve sugar, and bring pot back to boil.
  4. Stir pectin sugar mixture into pot and boil for exactly 1 minute. Boiling for longer than a minute will cause the jam to not set properly when cooled.
  5. Remove blueberry jam from heat and transfer to an airtight container. Let cool to below 40°F, and store chilled until service.

  9. While burgers are cooking, brush each side of the opened bun with its hinge attached, on the cut side, with melted butter.
