Blueberries are a wonderful fruit full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Its health benefits are amazingly beneficial in reducing fats, chomping down on free radicals, combating negative metabolic issues, promoting improved insulin levels, supporting ocular health and warding off diseases and cancers. I told you it was amazing! Read below to see what I have found. I’ll even cite the studies and links for you. – MissOlive

It’s been a pretty good season for blueberries here in BC.  I cooked up enough to do 18 half pints, and two pint jars.  I used a recipe by Paula Deen that uses fresh lemon zest and fresh lemon juice.  I cut the sugar down by about a third after reading some of the comments . . . and it turned out really good!  My favorite part of the whole process though is that wonderful sound of the jars sealing as they cool on the counter.  The sign of a job well done!
