We spent this lovely summer afternoon at our local pick-your-own-blueberries spot with our wonderful friends Mickey and Jayme. Our family came home with 6.5 lbs of perfect, plump, sweet berries. And the many we--some of us--ate as we picked and chatted and enjoyed being together, outside.
N: So, Jonah what do think of these blueberries? Do they taste good?
j: I'm here to pick, not eat.
(And pick he did, a whole half pound of berries. Hannah, John and I each picked 2 lbs.)
What to do with all these berries? I've frozen some already. I'm thinking about doing a huge batch of blueberry muffins to freeze--John will love to have those to grab on his way to work. I'm not much of a fruit pie kind of gal, but I do love turnovers. Add a handful to a salad? You bet I will. Jam? Maybe. Tonight we had them plain with vanilla ice cream.
