    Blueberries with Orange Liqueur and Lavender

    5 half-pints

    1 cup Orange-flavored liqueur 1 cup Water 1 cup Sugar 1 1/2 lb Fresh blueberries 20 ea Fresh
    lavender flower heads

    Prepare the jars, lids and boiling-water bath. Combine liqueur, water and sugar in a pan and cook
    over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved and the mixture has come to a
    boil. Remove the pan from the heat. Meanwhile, pick over, wash and dry the blueberries. Then pack
    them in hot, dry jars, placing four lavender flower heads in each jar. Leave 1/2" headspace. Pour
    the hot liquid into the jars, just covering the berries. Wipe rims with a clean towel and attach
    lids securely. Place the jars in the boiling-water bath and, when water returns to a full boil,
    process for 15 minutes. Remove the jars, cool, label and store.
