We know wild blueberries have a short shelf life when they are fresh, and so we have learned to use other methods! Not only were Nova Scotians freezing the berries, canning the wild blueberries was taking an upswing. In fact, in 1930, wild blueberries was recorded as the produce that had been canned the most in Annapolis Valley, NS. However, the Amherst News and Sentinel reported in 1933 that consumers seemed to vastly prefer the wild blueberry jam over the canned wild blueberries, stating that the canned version was very watery and minimal flavour. Additionally, the price of tinned wild blueberries in 1935 was $0.10 per tin, which was considerably higher than the price of fresh berries. That being said, though, canned wild blueberries still was a big industry for Nova Scotia. Tor Bay Canning Company actually reported having incredibly high profits in 1946, grossing over $20,000 that year from canned wild blueberries alone! ... See MoreSee Less
