Get your blueberries under a sink and swish them around to wash off any dirt. Remove any stems that might be still attached. Then put them into a strainer over the sink to drain.
After that prepare your jars, make sure they are clean and keep them hot. Pack your blueberries into the jars leaving ½ inch of headspace.
Pour water into a saucepan, add sugar and lemon juice. Slowly bring to a boil while stirring to help the sugar dissolve. Once it bubbles, remove from heat and let it cool for 5 minutes. Then pour the syrup over the berries keeping the ½ inch headspace. Wipe the rims clean and seal with your Denali lids and rings. Fingertip tight.
