With late summer comes one of our favorite summer fruits—wild blueberries! Small and juicy, blueberries are delicious plain or sprinkled onto cereal or oatmeal, but we also love them made into warm muffins, tempting pie, or as a sweet addition to a stack of buttermilk pancakes. Whether you pick your own or stock up at the market, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to use up this year’s fresh blueberries. That is, if you don’t eat them all first!

  • Don’t forget that blueberries are great for freezing too! Stock up while they are still in season and put in the freezer to be enjoyed throughout the year.

      • The best way to freeze blueberries is by spreading them on a cookie sheet(with sides,single layer) and freezing them on the pan for several hours. Then you can put them in a freezer bag once hard. They don’t get crushed and taste great. You may have to do this in several batches if you have a lot. Clean, rinse and dry before freezing. Enjoy.
