Blueberries anyone? We went blueberry picking...
 We went and picked 12 gallons of blueberries at a local farm.  We gave away 1 gallon and I canned the rest. 
For those interested I followed this recipe...  Blueberry Jam and syrup.  
I loved that I was making jam and syrup at the same time pretty much.  In all I got 6 half pints syrup, 23 half pints jam, and 23 pints of just blueberries. 
The blueberries I didn't turn into jam I packed into sterilized jars and filled with a light syrup of 1 cup sugar to 3 cups water heated until the sugar dissolved. Then processed them in boiling water bath for 15 minutes. 
It all turned out great and now we are on to blackberries!
