Dean and I decided to take these two kids blueberry picking last weekend
but they opted out..... They whined....it is too hot! It is too humid!
So Dean and I went alone. It WAS hot and humid but two hours later, we came home with TWENTY THREE POUNDS OF BLUEBERRIES!
Yes....no typo there... 23 POUNDS! Want to see what that looks like in the sink?
So while Matt was stuffing his face with fresh berries
I got to cooking and freezing....and it took all day. Seriously. It took forever to process that many berries!
I made blueberry bog and Dean made frozen blueberry yogurt. Then I tried an easy blueberry jam recipe and made 3 jars of lovely blueberry jam...it is delicious! I'd never made blueberry jam before but I have to make more. It was so simple...blueberries, sugar, lemon juice and water. It turned into something fabulous!
Ok, so 23 pounds sounds like a ton of blueberries, but I seriously want to go back. It takes a ton of blueberries to make anything, especially jam.... and I want to make enough for a dozen jars and still have enough for snacking and baking and smoothies and...and...and....
Apparently, we are blueberry obsessed in this house!
