Blueberry Season

Things always get so busy in July on the farm (yes I know it is August already – not sure how that happened). The garden is starting july blueberriesto produce vegetables and the animals are in high production. Our blueberry bushes just started turning out ripe plump juicy blueberries. We love blueberries in just about anything you can put them in. Pancakes, waffles, muffins, pies, jams, coffee cakes, smoothies, on top of our morning cereal or oatmeal, and of course just by the handful.

We go through quite a few of them as they ripen. But then they all sort of ripen those last couple of days at once.

That is when I gather blueberries for the rest of the year and preserve them by freezing them. Frozen blueberries are just as good in all of our recipes as fresh ones and a lot easier to store than some other methods. Pop them out a handful or bag at a time and you are good to go.

For now we are still enjoying some fresh blueberries each morning but there are already four quart freezer bags put away and more to follow!

    It’s good to preserve, but it feeds the soul to have them fresh. It also invigorate you to go back out picking. 🙂

    We have a lot of wild tall bush blues on our property, but the birds are always there ahead of us, so we go to the farm stand for our supply. I love them fresh with vanilla ice cream – yum! And on cereal, too. I so love fresh summer fruit!
