Lavender Ginger Pickled Blueberries.

Putting Up with Erin- A canning blog focused on pickling, preserving and "putting up" food in jars.
6 cups fresh blueberries
3-5 Tbsp dried lavender
1 cup honey
3 inches fresh ginger (peeled and sliced thin)
3/4 cup water
1-1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Wash the blueberries (removing an stems or bad berries).
Tie loose lavender in a tea bag or ball (multiple bags work fine).
Combine the vinegar, water, and honey in a medium saucepan and bring them to a boil.
Add the lavender tea bags and sliced ginger.
Once the brine is boiling vigorously, add the blueberries.
Stir and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the brine has returned to a rolling boil and has started to turn a vivid purple.
Remove tea bags.
Ladle the blueberries into the prepared jars leaving a 1/2 inch headspace.
Cover the berries with brine, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
Remove any trapped air bubbles from the jars.
Wipe the jar rims, apply the lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
Remove jars from canner and place them on a folded towel to cool.
Let sit for at least 24 hours before consumption.
