I ran out of freezer space, so I started canning the last of the blueberries. I am canning a new blueberry jam recipe - Cinnamon Blueberry Jam. It's from Taste of Home if you'd like to try it too.
Taste tester results?
Update 8/1/14: My youngest daughter said "you have to give it for Christmas, because it tastes like Christmas!"
This would make a wonderful Christmas present if you have blueberries right now. The first time I made it I got 5 -1/2 pints and I followed the recipe exactly. The second time I made it I got 5 - 1/2 pints as well. I used my food processor to "crush" the blueberries.
Yesterday my digital kitchen timer stopped working. I resorted to getting a "timer" on the internet on the kitchen computer. Where there is a will, there is a way, right?
Hubby and I are still not feeling good. It's hard to just rest when you have a table full of vegetables, and about 5 more pounds of blueberries to can with. He isn't resting on account of getting the truck fixed (after work) either. I hope to show some improvement by late today. The cough is lingering, but at least I can breath through my nose today.
I took some afternoon time to rest on the porch yesterday. I started another dishcloth. This pattern uses #10 cotton thread, and is one of the thinnest I make. These are perfect for the camper, as they have a handle to hang it, and they dry out quickly. Not to mention thin, so they pack nicely.
It will look like this:
I used to sell these at the Farmer's Market, but they take longer to make than knitted or regular cotton crocheted dishcloths. This is an old photo of some I made in the past.
