This family loves blueberries and we go through a ton every summer, so I really can’t believe we’ve lived in Florida as long as we have and never gone blueberry picking. It’s something I’ve always meant to do, but life has always got in the way.
This weekend, we headed to a local blueberry farm and picked to our hearts’ content.
We didn’t quite plan on the boys picking as much as they did … we weighed in with just over 13 pounds.
Thirteen pounds of blueberries. Unfortunately, we only had enough money for six pounds! Yeah, they don’t really have ATM’s or credit card machines on farms … so shamefaced, we had to leave with only half of our stash.
We’ve already had blueberry pancakes, blueberry smoothies, blueberry yogurt parfait and yesterday, I made this delicious low-fat apple blueberry walnut crisp for our Memorial Day dessert.
I’m looking to make some whole wheat blueberry muffins and a blueberry salad tomorrow, but still will have loads left. I’d love to hear your favourite blueberry recipes if you have any you’d like to share because I’m kinda running out of ideas.
I am beyond thrilled to have made it as a finalist in the first ever UK mummy and daddy blog awards aka the MADS and would be so very honoured and humbled if you could please, please, please vote for me here. Thank you.
