Blue in Tallahassee? Unheard of!
I went blueberry picking today - it was very cool! Well, it was actually very hot, but I'm so glad I went out and did this. Drove about 20 miles outside of town to a little blueberry farm. It's an honor system where the farmer has one-gallon buckets and bags available for picking. When done, you drop your money in a wooden bird house. At $8 per gallon, I couldn't go wrong!
I'm now faced with the dilemma of what to do with two gallons of blueberries. I had fantasies of making jam but that's not going to happen until my first paycheck. My friend ZeldaMae suggested blueberry pancakes or muffins. Pancakes I can handle, through them in the Bisquick mix. But muffins, that's a little too adventurous for me right now.
I am freezing them (yes, I know to freeze them on a pan then into a bag) for the day I get my canning supplies. Guess what everyone's getting for Christmas????
