Blueberry Freezer Jam

Has anyone made this using Splenda?....does one have to use some kind of pectin?.....I think last time I had some extra blueberries, I just boiled them up.....maybe with a bit of sugar and just put them in jars and froze them.....It was quite gooey, the way DH likes it.....has anyone else done it this way....any help will be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Just buy a box of no-sugar-needed pectin or a freezer pectin and follow the directions in the paper insert in the box. Very easy really. You cannot use regular pectin if you want to use Splenda® since it requires sugar.

Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.

I just made blueberry jam today! But I did use full sugar.
