Blueberry Joys…

Good, True & Beautiful

One of the joys of summer in our area is being able to pick fresh blueberries.  These are nutritious, delicious and one of my summer traditions it to pick fresh blueberries.

I especially like it when the bushes are loaded:

And before long, there is an abundance of berries for the freezer:

Some great things to do with blueberries are:

Put them in cereal.

Layer vanilla yogurt, berries, nuts or granola for a nutritious parfait.

Sprinkle them on salads.

Cook them with a little sugar for toppings for pancakes or waffles.

Try these delicious summer recipes:

Blueberry Crunch Cake

Blueberry Yum Yum

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries brought me a bit of joy this summer!
