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!

There just really is nothing like fresh-picked raspberries thrown in to the pot and cooked up in to yummy raspberry jam!  These are pretty much the last of the berries to be picked this year – there may be a few stragglers for a little nibble here and there.  But they are pretty much done for the season.  I made up a nice double batch of jam to put away for the winter, and to share with a few family and friends.  I have frozen some, for smoothies over the course of the next year till we are able to start the cycle all over again.
