Twenty six pounds of blueberries were picked at Steward Berry Farm in Cathcart, ON and made into 24 liters of pressure canned juice. Cost was $2.30 per pound. The fruit is just coming on the market in this part of Ontario. Process was to wash, add water to cover the berries, two batches were required, cook until soft, blend into slurry, stain through a food mill of 2 mm mesh. Place in liter jars and pressure can at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for storage at room temperature. There is almost no residue from blueberries and the straining part could be eliminated. I can about 80 liters each year, and blueberry juice is a favourite. More will be processed this week.
