Blueberries, blueberries, blueberries! I love, love, love them! When I was little, we used to go blueberry picking every summer. It is one of my favorite past-times. My grandpa made these little cans that my sister and I could tie around our waists to collect our own. This year I got to share the sweet tradition with my little guy.
I literally could not wait to start baking with them. That afternoon I added about a cup of freshly picked blueberries to some Lemon Poppyseed Muffins I had planned to make using this mix.
It was a simple addition that made all the difference.
I would suggest sharing these with friends or making for a group because the glaze doesn't last but a day or so before dissolving into a sticky, soggy mess. Afternoon treat, anyone?
We picked about 3lbs and I bought an extra 5lbs just to freeze. I measured them out in 4 cup increments, rinsed and dried them, and tightly sealed them in freezer bags to be used during the months when the store-bought versions are small, tart, and expensive!
A few days later, I made Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins which I'll share with you soon. :)
The little guy picking his first blueberry and loving the morning adventure! Now, if I could just get him to eat one fresh! ;)
