Blueberry Update

Oh my goodness!

When I was a little girl, my mother used to read this book to me.  It was one of my favorites:

It later became one of my children’s favorites as well.

I really enjoyed picking blueberries today, kind of like little Sal.  I think I ate just as many as I put in my bucket!  Here are some more pictures:

The berries were not mushy, they were just right and I only picked the very blue-est ones.  I then washed them and laid them to dry:

That settled it!  I just had to make blueberry pancakes!  Just use your favorite pancake recipe and add the blueberries once you spoon the batter onto the griddle:

If you don’t have a favorite recipe, here is mine:

1 C plain flour

1 C whole wheat flour, rolled oats, or cornmeal

1 2/3 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1-3 Tablespoons sugar (organic or maple preferred) depending on your taste

2 eggs, beaten

2 C milk (it could be almond milk or coconut milk if you have trouble with dairy)

1/3 C oil or melted butter

Whisk ingredients together.  Pour batter to the size pancake you like on a greased, hot griddle.  Add the blueberries.  Wait until bubbles form, flip the pancakes over until cooked through but not burned.  Enjoy with or without syrup.

If anyone has any tips or wisdom about blueberries, please share!

Have a wonderful day!
