Fresh Blueberry Salsa

SOMETHING BLUE.   Well I guess you can see what is on my mind, since two of my kids got engaged these past few months.  But I felt that this traditional wedding poem could be applied  to doing SOMETHING NEW WITH SOMETHING BLUE like BLUEBERRIES:  Made this salsa for a food demo at LI GreenMarket and I was asked to bottle it!  It did taste delicious, hope you enjoy…..
