On Saturday afternoon we went to another u-pick farm — Bottom View Farm in Portland, TN — to pick blueberries.
It was our first experience picking blueberries, and it was super easy. Our method was simple – Chris and I picked the fruit that was darkest and rolled off the stem, and Mackenzie ate them. 🙂
We also got to visit some turkeys, guinea hens, roosters, and chickens. Mackenzie had a ball.
One very loud rooster seemed to like her a lot.
We washed, measured, and froze the blueberries as soon as we got home. Five quarts of blueberries for $20! That’s less than half what we would have paid at Whole Foods, and still cheaper than a regular grocery store.
The first recipe I want to try is Blueberry Crisp from Bread and Wine. (Have you read it yet? It’s so good!) Do you have a favorite use for blueberries?
