The kids did a great job picking blueberries the first time we went, so we came home with more than three gallons. And, since they are only $8 a gallon at the farm where we go, we got a great deal!
So, of course, we went back. The kids weren't quite as enthusiastic the second time, and the blueberries were a little sadder (smaller, mostly) because of no rain, but we still came home with 2 gallons to freeze. Hooray!
The first time we went blueberry picking this summer, we made a day of it with friends invited to come with us and then come home to swim and rest. Then the husbands came to join us for dinner, and I made blueberry cobbler.
Easy Blueberry Cobbler
(thanks to my friend Angela, who gave me this recipe ages ago)
1 cup self rising flour
(or 1 cup AP flour + 1 1/2 t baking powder + 1/4 t salt)
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 stick butter, melted
2 cups blueberries
Butter 9x9 pan, mix ingredients in bowl and pour into pan. Pour on blueberries. Sprinkle with a little extra sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour.
(I usually triple this recipe but only use 2 sticks of butter. Then I use two 9x11 pans.)
