Went a Berry Pickin'

Last weekend before the heat set in here, we went blueberry pickin'. Hubby, Ian and I were able to pick 22#'s of the little darlings. We found some bushes that had huge berries on them. Hubby said the variety was called 'Herbert'. They were yummy too.

I made fresh blueberry muffins on Sunday morning and by Monday afternoon the 2 dozen that I made were completely gone. I'm thinking that my hubby and boys are missing my baking. Since I've been on my diet, I completely have changed how I cook and what I cook. While I wasn't able to enjoy any of the muffins, I have gotten to enjoy fresh blueberries with breakfast...Yummo!

I have froze the rest to use in more muffins, yogurt smoothies and maybe some blueberry jam.

Until next time...


  1. Wow our berries are not ready for pickin yet. By the end of the month we will be out with the baskets. I have just used up the last of last years...a lovely blueberry cobbler, yummy.

  2. Those are beautiful berries and they are SO good for you! I wanted to go pickin' but now this awful heat has set in, blah!

  3. Wow...22#'s, that is great! I just LOVE blueberries...especially blueberry muffins!! Enjoy!!

  4. Holy cats!! That's a lot of berries! Not in season here yet - but have some still tucked in the freezer from last year....and you just made me hungry for some muffins (altho we'd never go thru 2 dozen in a week, let alone 2 days!! yikes!) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  5. I made 12 half-pints of jam and it is awesome. I also used some in a berry mix>strawberry-red raspberry-blueberry.Mmmmmm.
    And then I got some Missouri peaches and made peach syrup for pancakes and ice cream. So tasty......
    Be lucky if it lasts the winter!
    Your menfolk are lucky!

  6. I love blueberries ~ and they sure look awesome!!! Enjoy!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. I have a recipe book on fat free baking..does your recipe call for oil? if so subsitute it for applesauce..they will come out even moister..and you won't have any guilt having one..I did it with my pumpkin chip muffins..oh my gosh were they good..didn't gain anything but flavor.;)

  8. don't forget the blueberry pancakes too Dee.
    Yum Yum.
