What Would You Do You with 17 lbs of Blueberries?

Ahh nothing like fresh picked blueberries!  Last week hubby, the girls and I went to pick.  I have taken the girls before, but this year they are big enough to be helpful and with hubby along, well.....

our box was just about overflowing!  It took me about 2 days to "process" them all!  Lots were eaten fresh, (love 'em on cereal), some frozen for future delicacies, I brought some to my mom, and then decided to try making jam for the first time and am proud to say I was successful :-) 

It's a small batch, but baby steps right?  Now I have all kinds of crazy ideas for trying other jams, relishes, pickles....we have a very small garden, but I see an expansion for next year.

There were a few different kinds of jars to pick from, so of course I picked the "quilted" ones.  They still look a little plain though.  Might have to dress 'em up with little fabric cozies or something.  In all my spare time.

Until Next Time,
