I took the kids blueberry picking last week and we picked a ton of berries. With the berries I made blueberry jam (and canned it), blueberry crumb muffins, blueberry bananna bread, blueberry boy bait from The Smitten Kitchen and tons of smoothies.

Blueberry Jam
Adapted from The Silver Spoon
Makes 5 8 ounce jars

9 cups blueberries
2 3/4 cups suar
1 lemon

In a large heavy bottomed pot bring the berries and sugar to a boil. Continue to boil for 30 minutes are until it reaches 220 degrees. Stir in the juice from the lemon and cook for a few more minutes. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
