Gr8 Substitution:

If you don't have the Simply Lemonade® with Blueberry, you can use any lemonade and fresh blueberries. Just muddle the blueberries with the thyme and sub in the lemonade for the Simply Lemonade® juice.

Gr8 Tip:

Weck® brand is my all "thyme" favorite for glass jars. Cutest little shapes and sizes. Also perfect for jams and preserves!
