Pimp that Preserve ~ inspiration 5 (deadline extension)

There`s a link way down at the bottom to all of the jars in this series so far..

True North Strong and Free! Feeling a little patriotic about our wild blueberry jam sweetened with maple syrup…it’s one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES…on toast…dribbled over goat cheese…sigh. I think Joel definitely earned his preserving badge with this one. I found some old charms at the flea market…yes…that’s Toronto’s City Hall (haha). Sewed a little band out of some plaid flannel (yes, my sewing skills are wayyy less than stellar…but it’s rustic!), attached with a nice red maple leaf button and adorned the top with a label inspired by girl guide and scout badges. Remember this one come Canada Day or cozy up in front of a fire in some flannel pajamas and crack into the wild blueberry goodness (a nice adition to a cocktail maybe??). Keep cozy…d.
