Blueberry Cheesecake, a day after Christmas

Recently, I stumbled upon some fresh blueberries, and it was as if a floodgate of cherished childhood memories burst open. In my home country, the availability of fresh blueberries was a rarity. We relied on canned Comstock Blueberry, and strangely, it became a beloved flavor of my youth – sweet, comforting, and unforgettable.

Fast forward to my life in New Zealand, where fresh and frozen blueberries are readily found in fruit shops and supermarkets. I was eager to savor the real deal, but my first bite was a revelation. These fresh blueberries were delightfully tart, bursting with natural goodness and flavor, a far cry from what I had known. It was a refreshing twist for my taste buds.


To recapture that familiar sweet blueberry essence, I have decided to make blueberry jam with my fresh harvest. It was a nostalgic treat, weaving together cherished memories and that comforting flavor.


Little did I know that my fondness for blueberries would ignite my daughter’s culinary passion. On a magical Christmas morning, I awoke to the sweetest surprise – a Blueberry Cheese crafted by my talented daughter. It was a marriage of the tangy blueberry jam and the creamy cheesecake, a heavenly fusion that touched my heart.


She followed my Blueberry Cheesecake recipe, one I had devised just months ago. This cheesecake isn’t your run-of-the-mill variety, starting with its unique crust. I couldn’t have been prouder of her, and my taste buds tingled with anticipation.
