Oh, I just LOVE blueberries! They are my favorite fruit! Yum Yum!
We got to go blueberry picking today!!! We (Scott, the boys, and I) picked 17.68 pounds in just over an hour! The boys had a ball! And they did their fair share of picking, too! Scott’s parents went with us and picked 24.52 pounds! Scott’s parents drove and chose the place to pick. I was more than disappointed with the price per pound but it was easy, good picking. We’re hoping to go again next week! My thoughts are you can NEVER have enough blueberries in the freezer for winter! I can just smell blueberry muffins right now! In fact, I’ll post a recipe here for anyone interested. My sister gave me this recipe and it’s delicious!
3 cups flour
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 cup sugar
1-2 t. real almond extract
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cooking oil
2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Note: If using frozen blueberries do NOT thaw them, use frozen.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Either grease 18 muffin tins or use 18 muffin papers. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat eggs, milk, almond extract, and oil together. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Fold together just until moistened. Add blueberries… fold in. Drop spoonfuls of batter in prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle a few almonds and then some sugar on each muffin. Bake about 25 minutes.
