Pie by the spoonful! It's like spreadable blueberry pie in a jar. It tastes like a spoonful of summer. Each spoonful pulls your senses to the most glorious blueberry patch during the height of blueberry season. Children love it, and so do adults. We could have called these preserves, "Maine in a bottle."
