Blueberries Fermented in Honey

Serves: 4 to 8
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


2 cups blueberries
2 cups raw honey


Sterilize the jar, jar lid and fermentation weight (see note).

Put the berries in the jar and cover with the honey. Place the weight on top of the berries to keep them submerged under the honey.

Cover the jar with cheesecloth and secure with rubber band. Store the jar in a cool dry place until the berries develop a slight effervescence, three to seven days. Taste the berries every few days to see how they are progressing. Once the berries get to the desired stage of fermentation, remove the weight and cover the jar. Store the berries in the refrigerator to slow the fermentation process.
