Jueberry Blam

When I used to commute into Anchorage with my Old Man for work, sometimes we'd stop at the Carrs (grocery store) in Muldoon (a neighborhood of North Anchorage) and buy a "bayberry blugel." Mmmm...those were good blugels. I know what these NYCers and even NJers say about their bagels beging the best, but I'd love a Muldoon Carrs bayberry blugel right about now.

Where am I going with this random memory of baked goods meets spoonerisms?

Because this weekend I had my own encounter with blueberries--apparently a high-production Jersey fruit.

Specifically I encountered five pints of blueberries.


That I promptly gave a shiatsu massage in a freezer bag.

After that, I tossed them in a hot tub with a nice sugar scrub--four and a half cups of sugar to be exact.


And then I turned up the heat on them and they cooked...


...and cooked.


After two hours I had 7 half-pints of jueberry blam--or maybe it's technically pruberry bleserves since there are bits o'blueberry in there.


Whatever the hell it's called, it's freaking delicious!

Wow Bezzie,

You're turning into a regular Martha Stewart! The jam looks yummy even though I don't normally like blueberries (I'm sure I'm probably the only person in the U.S. who doesn't like them)!
