Doesn't Add Up

Today I finished up all those wild blueberries by making blueberry sauce.  But I just do not understand how 7 cups of berries + almost 4 cups of liquids + over a cup of sugar = 6 cups sauce.  I mean, I get that things cook down and all, but that seems like an awful lot.  Doesn't it?

Anyway, the recipe is in the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving and it uses 1 lemon (zest and juice) and 7 cups of berries.  The rest is apple juice, sugar and corn syrup.  We'll be trying this very soon.  Maybe on some pound cake or something.

  1. The blueberry sauce is fantastic on pound cake with a little whipped cream and a few blackberries. YUM.
