ashacat and I went blueberry picking today with her mother-in-law. I am now the proud possessor of nearly a gallon, which is to say seven pints, close to eight pounds, of blueberries.

Good thing they freeze well.



Oooooh frozen blueberries are currently my favorite treat/snacky thing.
*I* want an Oompa Loompa! And I want it *now*!
She's blowing up like a baloon! Like a blueberry!
Violet! You're turning violet, Violet!
Oh, man, we just went to a u-pick place a few days ago and picked 10 POUNDS. I have no idea what I will do with this many blueberries but they do indeed freeze and then vacuum-seal well. *G*

Smoothies out the ying-yang?
Our family goes to South Haven every year and the first day or two we go to a pick-your-own place and pick several buckets' worth of blueberries. Some get eaten over the week in various forms, and the rest come home with us.

Oh, and the last weekend we're there is the National Blueberry Festival.

It's remarkable how the same blueberries that cost $1.50/pint or so in Michigan cost twice that back in Minneapolis, even when they're in season.
I'm not jealous.

I don't mind that they're charging £1.99 for a teeeeny little box of blueberries over here.

Nope. Don't mind at all.
They're in season!

Blueberries until you burst!
That's just the right amount to flavor 5 gallons of beer. Or mead, as you prefer.
Why use perfect blueberries for that? That's the sort of thing squishy old blueberries are for.
Your beverages are only as good as the worst ingredient.

Of course, since freezing them helps get the flavor out, maybe you have a point.
You use rotten apples for cider. *g* Otherwise it tastes like crap.
