"the spices overwhelmed the berry flavor and it was hard to see when the gelatin dissolved"

"A little sour so added 1 cup of sugar to next batch - much better. To: VickVick - yes this can be canned, water process for 5 mins, DO NOT PRESSURE CAN as that method does not do well with hi acid foods. Good luck."

"Made it for Christmas gifts - and kept a bit too ;) The blueberries had a slight bitterness and the apple juice complimented it perfectly. It was NOT too sweet! It freezes well too - very easy recipe!"
