Welcome to the very first of in my Throwback Thursday Series, aka recipes-from-days-gone-by-that-have-yet-to-make-their-way-onto-the-blog.

Nova Scotia Wild Blueberry Chia Seed Jam

The guilt has finally gotten to me, and I’ve forced myself to sit down and write up a little something for you. It’s not that I don’t like sharing recipes with you, actually it’s quite the opposite.
