true blueberry

"Then we shall have food for the winter." ~Blueberries for Sal

We have been doing a lot of berry picking this last month.
Which leads to reading these books over & over again...

Peter in Blueberry Land by Elsa Beskow

and also a Mama reading over and over again this fantastic book I found at the library::

This afternoon, we went to the farm to get some fresh whipping cream to make blueberry ice cream but sadly, they won't have any ready until Sunday so in the meantime, we made this simple recipe.
Lip smacking, finger licking, easy~peasy Blueberry Jam.
Because, in my opinion, one can never have too much blueberry jam stored up for winter.
Easy Blueberry Jam
(adapted from True Blueberry)
One 11 1/2 oz. can of frozen white grape juice concentrate
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
3 c. blueberries
Place all ingredients in a heavy bottomed pot and bring to a boil over med-high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium stirring frequently for about 25-30 minutes until the mixture thickens up & jells.
Remove from heat, cover & let sit for 1 hour.
Jar & Process or Freeze.
