Nine pounds of blueberries were picked at a commercial farm and processed into five liters of pressure canned juice. Berries were washed, placed in a pot with about five liters of water and propane cooked until soft about 20 minutes. The mixture was then blended into a slurry.
The mixture was then strained in a 2mm mesh food mill to remove the gross fiber and seeds. The strained juice was then placed in 5, one liter jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minute for long term storage at room temperature. Over a few weeks about 60, one liter jars will be canned. This batch cost $2.75 per pound for the berries. Each jar is about 2 pounds of berries and one liter of water, sufficient to make the liquid drinkable. Blueberry juice is perfect drink for most occasions.

Twenty eight pounds of blueberries were picked at a commercial site cost $81.25 or $2.85 per pound. The berries were larger than usual and most were ripe in a clump, hence easy to pick.The berries were culled and cleaned and a liter of water added for about 1.4 pound of berries per liter to make a drinkable juice. The berries were split into two batches, cooked until soft, hand blended into a slurry, strained through a 2mm mesh screen on a food mill, placed in liter jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage at room temperate. The pressure canner has a capacity of seven liter jars so four batches were required for a total of 28 liter jars. Pictures depict the process.
