Okay, so I just started harvesting blueberries about 5 days ago. Between a gift from a relative, the blueberries I’ve already harvested, and what will obviously be ready in the next 24-48 hours … we have too many blueberries! Especially since the kiddo is the only one allowed to eat them right now (and too many blueberries in one sitting does NOT make for pleasant diaper changes!!). So, I’m going to try my hand at canning. Check out this link: http://www.freshpreserving.com/pages/new_products/258.php.
Thanks to a coupon that I randomly clipped weeks ago, and then walking past an aisle display at the home improvement store that had a pile of these, I decided to make an impulse buy and try it out. I probably won’t get to it until later in the week, but I’ll keep ya posted on how it goes. In the meantime, I have 3 bags of blueberries already frozen and many more to come. Guess I better not wait too long, eh?
What are some of your family’s favorite ways to use blueberries? I plan to make some jam, as well as just can some by themselves. But I’m wondering if there are other creative ideas out there that I could “borrow” from my friends. Please share whatever ideas you have!
