Simple… Blueberry Jam!

It’s a good thing I live with the man I do…

He pretty much wakes up and just waits to see what I’m going to do

Today after breakfast I started making Blueberry Jam

I’m addicted to this freezer jam recipe

I had made Strawberry about a month ago… Have

two jars left…

They are so prettydark purple/blue in color…

Can’t wait to taste!

Have to let sit for 24 hours before refrigerating (Will last a couple of weeks)… or freeze for up to a year!

My word for the year is “Simple”… chosen on January 1, 2013…

I loved the idea of just choosing a word to get you through the year!…

and this recipe fits in perfectly!

  1. You MUST be an artist! I am the same way. My husband likes to have a plan so this used to drive him nuts he’s starting to get it now though. He’s WONDERFULLY handsome so that helps!

  2. Making jam is so fulfilling (in so many ways!) I was an adult before I knew people could buy jam. I thought everyone made their own!
    Blackberry jam here right now……….and this evening, the first batch of dilly beans. Our beans are taking over the garden!
    Love harvest season!
