Place the prepared jars (twist-off, or jars with rubber ring and swing top) on a damp kitchen towel. Rinse and dry the mint, pluck the leaves and chop finely. Squeeze the limes and measure out 150 ml of juice. Boil lime juice with blueberry juice, rum and preserving sugar while stirring.

Bubble for 3 minutes. Skim if necessary. Add mint and fold in.

Pour the hot jelly into the prepared jars up to the rim, seal and turn upside down. While cooling, turn the jars a few times to the other side so that the mint is evenly distributed.
