Blueberry Jam

Blueberry and Honey Jam - What She's Having

Ben Affleck is Batman now.

The internet is freaking out over this. People have actually tried to petition the White House to stop this. My problem isn’t so much with Ben Affleck, but with the fact that a new Batman is being created at all. The Christopher Nolan trilogy just ended a year ago, why are we already going back there? If the last Batman incarnation had been terrible I could understand a reboot, but it was practically perfect. And now Warner Brothers is going to go and put the Man Of Steel stink all over it.

Sigh.

But what do I know? My views super heroes were heavily influenced by a man I no longer speak to and  who doesn’t even like cooked fruit.

Blueberry Honey Jam - What She's Having

I, on the other hand, think jam is probably the greatest food ever invented. With pie coming in at a close second. This recipe is a little on the sweet side, I think 1/2 a cup of sugar could be safely taken out, but I didn’t have enough blueberries to test is that way.

Blueberry & Honey Jam

  • 4 cups blueberries 
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  1.  In a large heavy bottomed pot, crush the blueberries with a potato masher.  Add the sugar, honey, lemon juice and salt.
  2. Bring to a boil. Keep the berries at a rapid boil and stir continuously for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Pour into sterilized jars (I used 3 250 ml jars). If sealed properly the jars don’t need to be refrigerated.

  1. Yeah, Ben Affleck as Batman is pretty weird, isn’t it? I think my brain has just refused to contemplate the issue at all. I feel a little queasy if I even try, haha. Like you, I think the TDK trilogy is perfect and was aghast that they’d touch it so soon. According to my own male source of superhero commentary (lol), it’s just plain old competition with Marvel — an attempt to replicate the whole Marvel run-up to the Avengers movie (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, etc. etc. etc.) by rolling out a series of movies that culminates in something like the Justice League. Queasy. No idea how it’s going to pan out. (But my feeling is, badly.)

    ANYWAY. I originally just came here to say that your photography is stunning and I love it! But glad I came across your superhero commentary too. :)
