birch & maple

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. We are working on making some printables out of this book, and this is is the first one: recipes for simple blueberry jam + labels. 

The recipe is in English and in Swampy Cree, also known as
n-dialect Cree from the Cross Lake, Norway House area. Translation by Jennifer Thomas. This printable is here with permission from the author.

 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.
