How long will my fake blueberry jam last?

jen223 | Aug 15, 2011 08:30 PM

I just made some blueberry "jam" by cooking up blueberries, adding splenda (I know, I know.... But i still have to fit in a bikini for another month), and throwing in a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Pretty tasty, if I may say so myself, for how simple it was.

Question is....how long will this last in my fridge? Guessing splenda has no preservative value, the acid will have some, and does cooking/boiling the blueberries help it last longer? The jam will mostly be used with yogurt, on pancakes, and topped with peanut powder on top of vanilla ice cream. Just don't want to eat nothing but these 3 for the next week!

Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
