This blog post is from a few years ago — I just found it in my drafts, I guess I got sidetracked. In 2013, I designed a book called Wild Berries by Julie Flett. The book is about picking wild berries, and at the end Julie included a recipe for simple blueberry jam. I tried it out, and first of all, it was really good, but also, you don't have to sterilize jars and all that stuff. It's fun to make with kids. The ingredients can be wild blueberries and birch syrup or supermarket blueberries and maple syrup. I tried both: both very good. I mean, you can't go wrong. Amazing with whipped cream on waffles.
I've prepared a little printable with the recipe and a couple of labels for a jar, in case you want to give a gift to your neighbour, or something. The recipe is in English and in Swampy Cree, also known as n-dialect Cree from the Cross Lake, Norway House area. Illustrations by Julie Flett. Translation by Jennifer Thomas.
