We've been mashing them lightly and mixing with barely sweetened whole
milk yougurt and freezing them in popcicle forms. Baby eats these, oops,
kiddo eats these and calls them "ice cream". They are very refreshing
on a hot evening.

good, nearly anything else bad)

Freeze some; serve them for breakfast frozen with some especially good
yogurt, some toasted oats (or musli) and especially good honey.
Let it set a little bit for the oats to soften, and the yogurt to get
colder from the frozen berries.
I never want to be without frozen blueberries in my freezer.

It's terribly tempting to stock up on them - they're just so gorgeous
and yummy right now - and they do freeze nicely. Know what, though?
You can just buy them already frozen, probably for less than what you'd
pay for fresh, and the brands I've bought frozen have all been
perfectly fine. I think they're $2.99 or less for a one lb. bag, and
I'm all for letting someone else do the work.

Blueberry sauce -- blueberries, water, sugar, and some people add a
splash of liqueur, but I don't. Yummy.

Lovely neighbor lady gave us this recipe. She made them for us once
and Miguel (DH) made a batch recently. They're wonderful!:

Blueberry Muffins

You will need foil muffin cups for this recipe. Bake on a cookie
sheet at 375 F for 20-25 minutes.

2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. melted butter (cooled)
2 eggs
1 1/4 C. sugar
1/2 C. milk
2 - 2 1/2 C. blueberries

Mix first 3 listed dry ingredients in bowl. In separate bowl,
mix sugar and eggs, then add milk. Add to dry ingredients, mix
until all ingredients are combines, then add blueberries. Use
extra 2 T. of flour if using frozen blueberries. Fill muffin
cups to the top. Sprinkle top with sugar before baking.

In addition to everything offered here -- pancakes. Blueberry pancakes
with frozen blueberries in the winter are okay. Blueberry pancakes
with fresh pancakes in August are... they are... oh-my-goodness-divine.
The blueberries *pop* when they're prepared from fresh in a way that
never happens when they're prepared from frozen.

I only freeze fresh berries when I pick them myself (raspberries last
week, this week, and next. Blueberries hopefully next week and the
following couple).

Eat the fresh berries now, as many as you can in as many ways as you
can until you can eat berries no longer. Eat'em plain by the handful.
Their season is fleeting, so be not coy and gather ye berries while ye
may...

Sorry. I might have gone just a tad over the top there. I enjoy a
good berry.

Alexis.

Oh, damn...now we're going to get into an endless
argument about why this is or is not a "sauce"...

*giggle* I like you people just fine, but anyone who wants to argue
that will just have to do it without me. Feel free to call it something
else. It'll still be yummy.

Sometime poster Dragon (who attended one of the San Diego cook-ins a couple
years ago) wrote this to an e-mail list:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, here are a couple of recipes for some yummy blueberry treats:

Blueberry sorbet:

1 pint fresh blueberries
1/2 cup vanilla sugar
1/2 cup strawberry jelly or jam
1/2 cup blueberry jelly or jam
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch salt
Water

If you do not have vanilla sugar, just use plain granulated sugar and 1/4
teaspoon vanilla extract. Place the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, jelly,
salt and about 1 cup water in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add enough
water to bring the volume to 5 cups. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the
refrigerator. Process in ice cream maker for about 30 minutes or until it
has set up well. Freeze at least four hours.


Blueberry ice cream:

1 pint whipping cream
1 pint whole milk
1 pint fresh blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
2 blades mace (whole)
1 cinnamon stick
1/8 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
Pinch salt

Put all ingredients except the blueberries into a sauce pot. Heat until it
just begins to boil and then back off to a bare simmer. Crush the
blueberries lightly with a wooden spoon or a potato masher then add to the
hot cream mixture. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and
cool to room temperature. Chill overnight in the refrigerator. Process in
ice cream maker until set (about 30 to 40 minutes). Freeze at least four
hours.

Serve with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar or pomegranate molasses.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried the sorbet recipe, and it's very good.

Bob
