I make Low Sugar Preserves with a 2 1/2 Lb bag of these , juice from one lemon , 1 1/2 cup of sugar and low or no sugar pectin. for these my best tip is = Wild Blueberries are thin skinned and you do not pick them out of your teeth like the regular ones. they have more flavor also. I do not mash them on purpose and reduce them as much as possible . as you can see a tea spoon would have 40-50 berries easy
do your vines produce every year? i had some on my property that had grapes some years and didn't some years. neighbor told me that they only produce every other year. sold the property, so never got to verify.
One thing to point out, IF you do mash the grapes, try not to crush the seeds. If you do, it'll change the taste of the jelly, moreso with the taste of wine, if you make that. A few seeds won't matter, but the more that's crushed, the bitter the taste can be.
I freeze some of mine whole in ice cream tubs and eat all year. We grind skin, seeds and all for smoothies. Mix with an orange, an apple, banana and a few blueberries. The skin and seeds have most of the antioxidants.
While on the 127 Yard sale this last week, I picked up a awesome oil jar/cylinder/container (1quart). It is from the 20's/30's....Tiolene Motor Oil. Found where they sold a couple jars at Barret Jackson for $350.00+ and just found this site

Well, I can spill the beans now, although many of you probably already know. Four Winds is officially under new ownership. A friend of mine Is the new operator and has some really big plans for the place. In the next month they will shut down completely and renovate the place. It will be...
Can’t believe no one has brought this up yet. Think SEC and ACC will hold their ground and play?
If they do, all the stars from the other conferences will bail and the recruiting will suffer for years because of this.
