Blueberry Syrup Time!

It’s August and the wild blueberries are in season. Time for us to make our usual 3 1/2 gallons, enough to last us until next year’s crop comes in.  A big job, made easier with a food processor.  We basically make blueberry jam and can it in quart jars. When we need syrup (for those great pancakes) we just dump the jam into the food processor and add enough orange juice to thin it into the right consistency and whir it just until the lumps of jam are gone.

Carolyn makes 2 or 3 batches at a time (despite what it says on the pectin package!)

Filling the jars — careful, it’s HOT!

finished product!
