My good friend and I went to a local orchard this morning to pick blueberries. The season is running two weeks early, so the bushes are slim pickings but I still managed to get close to 5lbs worth. I forgot my camera, but she snapped these with her phone.
My 4 yr old had a blast picking(and eating) the blueberries. And he was very diligent about only picking the ripe ones. At one point he told me that I could "go take a rest" because he had found a spot with so many that he could pick for the both of us.
We then got 2 bushels worth of apples, which will soon be turned into apple pie fillings and loaded into the freezer chest.
We hope to go back on Friday and pick more(there were still quite a few that needed ripening) and head over to another spot for raspberries.
Anyone have any good recipes for blueberry treats that can be frozen?
Have a great day,
