    How can I make it a little bit thicker?

    It is mostly for sweetness. The honey is a great natural sweetener and is a great replacement for sugar in jams and preserves. However, you can try eliminating it altogether and/or trying another sweetener in its place.

    Is the honey for consistency or sweetness? Hubby wants to eliminate sugar as much as possible. Yesterday I just blended the blueberries with nothing added.

  • Pauline

    How long does this spread stay fresh and usable?
