Madame Blueberry

We tackled the blueberries today! We started by making half pints of blueberry syrup, perfect for ice cream, pound cake, cheese cake, pancakes or bread pudding! The children took turns washing, crushing, mixing and stirring the syrup. We mixed the blueberries with lemon juice, sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt. When we finished the canning process we had nine half pints of blueberry syrup, plus the twelve pints of blackberry jelly from yesterday. But we still had a lot of blueberries! We used the rest of the blueberries to make thirty-six muffins and six loaves of bread. It's a good thing we have a big freezer!
