This will produce 3 pints of blueberries. Get a canning pot, three pints of jars and lids, jar pincers, a stainless steel pan, a wooden spoon, ladle, a measuring cup, a peeler, knife, colander, and dishcloth.
For the ingredients, get three pounds of blueberries, 1.5 cups of apple cider vinegar, ¾ cup of water, 1.5 cups of sugar, and three inches of peeled ginger strips. Now, mix the sugar, water, and vinegar in the saucepan and boil. Then, put in the ginger strips, wait a moment, and then the blueberries for 5 minutes until the mix becomes purple. A funnel can help, but if not, carefully pour in the mix into one jar at a time with the spoon.
Leave enough room at the top to screw on the lid; use the ladle to get rid of any air bubbles that is in the mix. Clean the top off and put the jars in the pot filled with hot water for 10 minutes. Use the pincers to remove the jars on the cloth and let it sit in for one day to cool down. After they have cooled, they can placed in the fridge.
