More uses for Blueberries

Getting desperate for blueberry uses, I turned to the index of the trusty Bell Complete Book of Home Preserving that Alicia mentioned in the last post. Blueberry Bonanza? Spreadable Blueberries? Blueberry Nectarine Freezer Jam? I opted for the Blueberry-Basil Vinegar.

Just mash together equal parts white wine vinegar and fresh blueberries, add some basil, and put it in a jar for a couple weeks. The jury is still out on whether this is a good idea… Alicia is looking at the fruit flies buzzing around it disapprovingly.

    blueberry wine! just mash (about 2.5lbs), add sugar (about 3 or 4 cups), and a pkg of champagne yeast (from the homebrewing store). pour into a (sterilized) milk jug, add water up to 2 inches from the top, top with an air lock (balloon with a few pin holes) and stick in the closet for a week. strain, bottle, and age for at least a month or two. you can do this with blackberries or cherries or any other fruit your garden is overflowing with. you can also increase the fruit, sugar, and water proportionally and still just use one pkg of yeast for up to 5 gallons. the vinegar looks lovely too!
