Blueberry Sunday

Anna picking blueberries on a Sunday morning

Some friends of ours have harvested all they can handle from their blueberry crop and called us up to see if we could find a home for these tasty treats.

We picked and picked and then picked some more.

The current plan is to save some back for dessert through the week, share some, and make the rest into our first batch of blueberry fruit leather.

That sounds like a good plan to me. How about freezing some to use in blueberry muffins or pancakes? You might also dry some for the same purposes.

Sheila --- We don't tend to eat blueberry muffins or pancakes. (No grains for us except in dessert). After a lot of experimentation, I've found that frozen fruit doesn't really float our boat --- it's good if you bake with it or make smoothies, but we do neither, preferring our fruit unadulterated. Dried fruit fits our palates better.
