Blueberries are good for you

While blueberries are still in season, I thought I would make a post to remind us of its health benefits. They are said to:

Improve short term memory loss; Ameliorate age-related declines in neural and cognitive function; Protect against macular degeneration of the retina; Promote urinary tract health; Act as a potent anti-inflammatory agent and COX-2 inhibitor; Improve glucose metabolism through the activity of chologenic acid; Reduce the risk of some cancers  (source  and here).

I am not very good at making jams, but I do love them. I received this blueberry jam from a friend in Europe, which was such a nice surprise to begin with. Plus, the standard jam jar lasted five days between my husband and I; that is how delicious it was!
