Easy Blueberry and Raspberry Preserves

easy blueberry raspberry preserves

Summer is finally here and it’s time to relish in its rewards! We took advantage of our local market’s sale on fruit and decided to make them a little bit sweeter. Easy Blueberry and Raspberry Preserves are great with just about any dish that you’re wanting to sweeten up with amazing fruity flavor. You can eat them on biscuits, waffles, and pancakes for breakfast. Wanting to sweeten up your lunch? Add a dollop of raspberry to a grilled chicken salad. The possibilities are truly endless. Although we made both of these preserves with fresh fruit, you can also make them with frozen berries as well. We decided on fresh berries since we’re in the summer months. However, we would suggest using frozen berries during the winter months.

Easy Blueberry and Raspberry Nutrients

Both blueberries and raspberries are full of great nutrients to add to your daily diet. Both berries are high in Vitamin C and raspberries are also a good source of fiber. Blueberries are high in Vitamin K which is important for cell growth and bone development. So, just know that your sweet treat is also doing something great for your body as well!
