Blueberries are so delicious but also so fast to go bad!! >.< So our little bat wanted a way to keep them for longer (silly little bat didn't consider freezing them, however, this idea is super easy-to-make and delicious, so maybe it was a blessing in disguise.) Now enough about our little bat and off to cooking!!
- Blueberries (probably also a good recipe for watery fruits – I tried it with strawberries, it worked well too)
Wash your fruits well (and if you’re not going with blueberries, chop the fruit you chose), place in a deep container, and cover well with honey. You will be using more or less equal quantities of fruit and honey, of course, the more honey you use the sweeter the jam. Place in the microwave and heat for two to three minutes… and you’re done!! (I cannot stress this enough, be vigilant while cooking your jam and make sure it has plenty of space to expand! When it will boil, it will at least double in volume!! So unless you want to make a mess, keep a close watch! After all, it’s just three minutes.) You may want to blend your jam but that is totally up to preference, I personally enjoy the little bites.
Add one cup of yogurt (I added low-fat strawberry to my blueberry jam) for a unique and creamy filling. Add the yogurt while still hot, stir, and heat for another 30 seconds. Stir again until it’s all smooth and blended. You can add some gelatin and go-ahead turning this into a lovely cheesecake! (I plan to try it one day, will probably write an article if maybe one day I will and use an oat base for the base so it will still be healthy enough in small portions. Let us know if you do invent some more recipes we should try!)
