We bought 170 pounds of blueberries on Monday at a farm on 56th street in Tsawwassen.
It was a good thing I did not get the 100 pounds of peaches I had planned on, there is no way that I could have managed to process all that fruit in a day and certainly I could not fit in the freezers.
The jam is low sugar and we had it last night on stone wheat thins with Brie - very, very good.
I had hoped to be making red huckleberry jam, the crop in the Shuswap this year is phenomenal. I have never seen the plants so full. It was easy to pick a cup in five minutes or less. I have always wanted to make some jam from wild fruits but have never been in a spot to be able to do it because I have never found the fruit in quantity.
Finally, if you are interested, I have a lot of figs just ripening, please come and get some, we will not eat more than a handful
