Lavender-Blueberry Jam

[PIC]

This jam just went from a gold winner to multi platinum one with this secret ingredient: lavender! I do suggest this during the fall and winter months since lavender like to bloom during the spring time. Once you have your freshly grown lavender (or store bought) you will have to dry it out and grind it down into a powder. The awesome thing about this is that you do not need that much powder, so you can really use this for a lot of other things as well. So with your homegrown lavender and blueberries, you are able to make a wonderful treat where you know exactly where it came from.
