Blueberry Conserve

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Cindy Lynn

This is in response to a request on the boards. I haven't tried it yet, but it's making my taste buds water. Can't wait for my blueberries to produce enough fruit so I can make this. Cook time includes processing of filled jars only.

This was a yummy recipe. I was about 1/4-1/3 c of blueberries short, so I substituted raspberries. I also reduced the sugar to 3 & 1/2c, and used raw sugar instead of white. This smelt great when I was cooking it, a bit like blueberry marmalade. At first this tasted very sweet, however after leaving it in jars for the flavours to meld it tastes great. The lemon & orange cuts through the sweetness of the sugar & berry fruits. Thanks for such a great recipe, I gave some jars away & the recipients loved it.
