Blueberries, Blueberries and More Blueberries!

Easier is so much better! On Thursday, my hubby & I drove out to Southwick and purchased a large quantity of the local, fresh, sweet, colorful blueberries. Yes, it’s Blueberry Season, but we really did not want to pick them ourselves! It was much easier to purchase them already picked! At the farm roadside stand, when a larger quantity is purchased, the cost/quart is much less.

In the afternoon many Ziploc bags containing the delicious berries were packed and labeled. Our supply of blueberries for the year is now in our freezer.

Yesterday afternoon two batches of homemade Blueberry Freezer Jam (click) were made, one batch at a time. Later today the containers will be placed in our freezer. The third batch of Blueberry Freezer Jam (click) will be prepared tomorrow.

This morning Blueberry Pancakes (with cinnamon and nutmeg) tasted absolutely scrumptious at breakfast. The extra pancakes were individually placed in sandwich bags and then in a Ziploc Freezer bag. Into the freezer they went. On another morning we will enjoy them, again.

When the fresh local blueberries are in season we totally enjoy them! Yes, more are in our fridge waiting to be enjoyed. Making Blueberry Delisimo (click) and Yummy Blueberry Muffins (click) is also on my agenda. A homemade Blueberry Muffin – Yummy!

Do blueberries grown in your area? Do you purchase the fresh local blueberries? How do you enjoy them?

Ahh, blueberries are so good!
We are enjoying them!

Blueberries are one of my favorite fruit. I love them in muffins and fresh with a little cream. I haven't thought much about freezing them but this is something I would like to do in the furture. I hope you have a lovely day :>)
