Easy Blueberry Jam

Blueberry Jam

This past Saturday, my husband decided we needed to have an on-a-whim family outing! We went to a local u-pick blueberry farm, since Little Man loves blueberries. Plus, there is SO much you can make with blueberries!

Blueberry Picking

After we got home and I washed them all, I found a recipe that I could….sorta follow. πŸ˜‰ Since I don’t like following recipes to a T, I decided I’d share with you all this super simple, so easy, small-batch blueberry jam recipe!

Jam

Ingredients:
4 cups blueberries
1/2-3/4 cup sugar (I erred on the side of less sugar)
6 drops Young Living’s Lemon Vitality oil (you could use about 2 tsp of lemon juice)
sprinkle of cinnamon (believe me, this helps make it!)

Directions:
Mix all the ingredients on medium heat in saucepan, stirring continually. Continue stirring for 30 mins. Don’t stop stirring, or it will begin to stick and burn to the bottom. Yes, I understand not leaving the stove for 30 mins is difficult. It will be worth it. After 30 mins of cooking, pour into glass jar- my batch made 1qt and 1/2 cup of jam. Refrigerate until at least cool for it to firm and turn into jam consistency. Enjoy!

My men loved this on a batch of homemade zucchini bread and a batch of zucchini bread where I added blueberries to the top. Yum!

What’s your favorite blueberry recipe?

Saturday Adventures

Twice in the past month, my sister, Caleb and I have been going on little Saturday adventures to local places. Adventures are always more fun with someone else, right?

The first adventure was a little pre-meditated. We had heard about a new coffee shop about 30 minutes away and decided to go. It was a fun outing, with yummy coffee & treats and window shopping at all the antiqueΒ shops on the square. Of course all of that walking burned those calories that we consumed. πŸ˜‰ When we walked back to where we parked, we found a cute little area and of course, we had to take pictures!

Then last Saturday morning, we got out earlier than before and went to a local donut shop for some coffee and a donut. Our plan was to walk at a local trail, and we needed something to give us energy! πŸ˜‰ Caleb had so much fun seeing the other kids and eating his food while we sipped our coffee and chatted. We then got to walk for over an hour in the cool morning air, chatting and enjoying each other’s company. I am so thankful to have a little sister, who is a wonderful aunt for my little man and is one of my best friends! ❀
