Blueberry Yumminess!

A few weeks ago I went blueberry picking with my mom-in-law and my two older girls at Klassen’s Blueberries in Harrow www.klassenblueberries.com, and we had a good time. We would have had a great time I’m sure if it wasn’t for the three trips each that Zoey and Sophia had to make to the port a john that was a few minutes walk from the designated place of picking… I think that they were getting bored with picking and that’s all they could think of to do! But that annoying fact aside, it was a beautiful day to be out in the sun picking berries and we are once again stocked up for a few months. This year I decided to make some blueberry jam, and I wanted to try some without any sugar added. I found this recipe http://monasrecipes.blogspot.com/2009/07/best-ever-blueberry-honey-jam.html for blueberry honey jam and I tried it! Well, it was a success – it’s delicious and I would definitely recommend that you try making it if you’re into that kind of thing.

Here’s a photo of the yummy freezer stash that we have to eat on cereal, in muffins in pancakes, and in smoothies!

And here’s a picture of Zoey and Sophia enjoying some blueberries for an afternoon snack.

Well, after the successful jam venture I decided to go all out and I canned some fresh local tomatoes, as well as some delicious peaches that we got from our friends’ orchard in Ruthven www.medelorchards.ca. I must say that I am going to take a break from canning for a while, but in the fall I am definitely going to do some applesauce as well.

Please share your favourite jam or canning recipes, I would love to try them!
