My two favorite things are now ready for me to enjoy this season. I love, love, love, blueberries and, I love me some delicious, sweet, good old fashioned homemade blueberry jam.

Jam just always has a special place in my heart. It goes well with one of my favorite childhood lunches, which is guess?? Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwhiches!

 

I am such a lucky gal that we literally live 2 minutes away from a Blueberry Patch here in TEMECULA!

 

Blueberry Picking

Every blueberry season I take my kids to the blueberry patch to pick our very own pints of blueberries. I like to go on a crisp cool morning in the summer because the blueberry patch is way less crowded, it also nice and cool, and , you just feel like you in a whole other state (not in California).

 

Our local Temecula blueberry patch is nestled in a small, quite, secluded area in the city. Away from all the hustle and bustle of suburban life. So taking my kids there on a quite summer morning is something I look forward to. We pick our blueberries, then head over to their little red barn house and look at the chickens and farm animals they have.

If we are lucky, sometimes there is story time telling so we all sit and listen to a nice short story read by one of the lovely workers. From there we head over to pay for our blueberries, grab some local honey they have for sale, and set off to make something special with our special blueberries.

Blueberry Jam

Over that past years I have made a number of recipes with our special picked blueberries, and for some reason I always feel like just cant come home and eat them (probably cause we were eating them while we were picking…shhh don’t tell the patch owners lol).

I have made pies, muffins, and, my favorite… BLUEBERRY JAM.

This year I am in the mood for making blueberry jam. Probably because I have a 3 year old toddler and all she asks for is PB & Jam sandwhiches everyday! Oh and string cheese too lol! Is my toddler the only one addicted to string cheese??

Speaking off toddlers I decided to go blueberry picking with just her and I while the older kids are in school. This is a nice mommy and me date for just the two of us. We came home and I got to making the Blueberry Jam!

If course I had to make my little girls most requested lunch. P.B. and Jam sandwhiche. However in our house we are a peanut free household because my 7 year has a severe peanut allergy so we have to be safe. I used almond nut butter in place of peanut butter. My kids still love it!

 

We still just call it PB&J.

    I normally just stick to strawberry jam (as I’m getting ready to head up to the strawberry festival tomorrow) but I think I just might have to try something new 😁

    I hate it when I see beautiful posts like this and then the comment section empty. I love jam and I think that there is nothing compared to the homemade stuff. My favorite is apricot jam and I have to admit I never made blueberry jam until now but mostly because I never had access to so many blueberries haha. The color turned out beautiful!
