I made some really awesome strawberry jam earlier in the month - which received a lot of rave reviews if I do say so - and I wanted to keep up this wave of domesticity. I picked up a 3L basket of blueberries at a local farm, and have just enough fresh ones left over to snack on this evening while I read on the balcony.
Did I mention that I'm on vacation???
Now that it's all said and done, I have 10 little jars and three larger ones. If I want to take some jam to the fair, they have to be exhibited in 8oz jars only, so I've got to be pretty specific. It also wasn't as lengthy a process as making strawberry jam. Just took about 45 mins from start to finish. And there is nothing special in the jam other than a good dose of fresh lemon juice. I was thinking of going a little herbal like what I did with the strawberries, but then figured I should stick to the tried and true.
