It's July!  It's HHH and the local Blueberry crop tastes delicious!  Our supply of the local sweet juicy Blueberries for the year is now stored in the large freezer downstairs.  It's a tad too warm to use the oven, so my little griddle was put to work.  This AM Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes tasted delicious!  Below, the third pancake is ready to flip over.     

After my DH & I enjoyed our breakfast the remaining pancakes were cooked.  The photo on my blog masthead gives a wonderful idea as to the quantity of delicious light pancakes (with a small amount of Cinnamon & Nutmeg) one batch yields.  The extras are cooled, packaged and placed in our freezer.

Earlier this summer when I was redesigning my blog, the large plate of Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes kept coming to mind.  I had to include it.

This afternoon Blueberry Freezer Jam is on the agenda.  Two batches will be made -  each batch made separately.  I like this 24 hour method so much better than preserving the Jam using the method my mom & sister used during my childhood.  No stirring over a hot stove any more.  

Our supply of Blueberries are so juicy and delicious that next week we will probably purchase more to enjoy now and to freeze to enjoy later in the year. 

Are Blueberries one of your favorite fruits?

Rita, Carol & Barbara- Thanks! I had fun planning my "new look". We enjoyed the fresh local blueberries with cereal for over a week. Need to get more! :)
