Seeking canning (eating?) advice for jam

grubn | Aug 3, 2010 09:57 AM

About 3 summers ago, I was a little overzealous with the jam making and I have about 3 dozen jars of blueberry jam left. Is it still ok to eat?

I've done some internet searches on the question, and the feds say toss after a year but considering their stance on things like eggs, which I regularly ignore without ill health affects, I'm wondering if I actually need to throw them away. The jam *looks* fine and the seals are still intact . . . the inner thrift in me is loath to throw them away, but a hospital visit is obviously more costly (in many ways, not just $$).

Thanks in advance for any advice!
