Gingered Blueberry Nectarine

072020114259

I went blueberry picking with my mom again this year and still have some berries to use up….about 6 quarts of frozen berries. When we went shopping the other weekend at Walmart they had the most beautiful nectarines…big and round and plump as your palm. Not those little walnut sized ones we get alot of the time. Their color was a deep red/orange with a deep yellow mixed with it. I got them home and decided they needed to go into a jar with the blueberries. All that was left was choosing a spice to flavor it with. Vanilla seemed kind of tame and I didn’t want a citrus, and I don’t have any lovely chillies….so I went with ginger. After all I have grated frozen cubes plus lovely candied bits from The Ginger People.

Saw this posted and decided to bite the bullet and sign up. I already have two jars of stuff I can send but I figure I will feel the want to expand myself to make newer and more inventive products if I am trying to impress a random stranger.

Right now I am thinking either something blueberry or the strawberry using strawberry chocolate tea I have been thinking of doing for a fruit jam/jelly. And either pickled watermelon rind or Carla’s Bread&Butter pickles for a savory pickle.

Guess we’ll just have to see what else sticks out and inspires me before the mailing date.
