Blueberry season has finally started and the First Coast is ripe for the picking. We have compiled a list of blueberry farms with a delectable amount of fresh U-Pick blueberries. Be sure to call before starting your blueberry journey, because the majority of these farms only take visitors by appointment.  Once you have your berries picked, it’s time to get cooking. Check out the B2 Jam recipe below from Maple Street Biscuit Company for one of the best preserve recipes you have ever tasted!

Shhhh! The B2 Recipe

Maple Street Biscuit Company is super protective over their recipes…and we don’t blame them! They shared with us a loose version of their B2 formula, so you may have to experiment a bit to get it down right.  It is the kind of recipe a great home cook who doesn’t write anything down would share. Good Luck!

  • 1:1 ratio of blueberries and blackberries
  • More sugar than you would think possible
  • 2 cups of apple juice
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Some pectin
  • Mix it up, bring to a boil, let simmer, then cool.
