I rarely consume jams of any kind. Recently I rediscovered scones and what a delight it was! Especially if it is paired with some jam and cream! Whenever I buy jams, I usually use them as a glaze or in this case a filling for my cheese tarts. Since I rarely use them, a jar can last for a longggg time. Although it is not expensive, I don’t want to waste any. So I figured, why not make my own jam? There are no preservatives and I can control the amount that I make. :)

- Bring to a boil.
- Once the blueberries soften, mash them using a form or a potato masher.
- Set the heat to low and let the jam thickens (about 15-20 minutes)

What am I up to now that I’m done with the Bachelor’s Degree? Chilling out and wasting time. Fun stuff.
