Blueberries Are Here!
I went blueberry picking for the second time this season yesterday at a local U pick'em blueberry farm. With my family of four, including myself, in 2 picking sessions this week, we scored almost 20 pounds of blueberries. Can you tell we eat a lot of blueberries? That may seem like a whole lot of blueberries but when you consider all the yummy ways we enjoy this delightful berry, it really doesn't seem like enough. First of all, blueberries are the perfect topping on almost any breakfast cereal, especially hot cereal. Then, we love to bake, blueberry muffins, blueberry pie, and make blueberry smoothies, and our favorite (almost weekly) treat is blueberry pancakes.
There are of course many other ways to enjoy blueberries so get out there to start picking! If you want to know where you can pick blueberries, The North American Blueberry Council has a list of places in New York State where you can find them. Hurry though because blueberry season will be ending shortly.
