sweet stuff sunday: blueberry jam!

I didn't get very many blueberries yesterday morning as it was the slim pickins and the last of them... I had about a cup and a half, and decided to make jam. So today's sweet stuff is mini biscuits & jam.

what you will need for the jam:

1 1/2 C fresh blueberries

1/3 C sugar

1 good squeeze from a lemon

a sprinkle of cinnamon

put all ingredients in a small saucepan or a medium skillet (I don't have a small saucepan)

place pan on stovetop on medium heat and stir occasionally for about 20 minutes, keeping a close eye on and stirring more the last 5 minutes. You want it to thicken.... this makes about 4 oz.

Now, for the biscuits...

2 C all purpose flour (I used Cup 4 Cup GF flour)

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

6 tbsp butter

1/2 C milk

preheat oven to 400 degrees

measure out the flour, baking powder, & baking soda into a large mixing bowl

grate very cold butter into flour, and fluff with a fork

pour in milk and mix

dump out onto a floured surface and knead 4-5 times, then shape into a rectangle. I do this to prevent any waste - you are welcome to use a cutter and reshape, but for me, this is easier...

...and then I reshape a bit for looks...
now bake for 8-10 minute or until golden....

 I am off to do the evening farm chores and get animal kisses before lounging with Christian and watching a few episodes of Atlanta...
