A taste of summer in the middle of winter? You can grow that!
We pick tons of blueberries and blackberries every year, and fortunately they are easy to freeze. We just pick out any leaves or random bugs and place them in a shallow layer in zip-lock bags in the freezer. (Place the bags on a cookie sheet until the berries are frozen so that the fruit isn’t stuck together as it freezes. This will make it easier to use just some of the berries from the bag later.) One of my favorite recipes for blueberries, fresh or frozen, is Martha Stewart’s Blueberry Buckle. This is a delicious recipe just as is using either blueberries or blackberries. Last week I used three cups of frozen blueberries and two of blackberries – just use the fruit frozen and follow the recipe in every other way.
A taste of summer in the middle of winter! Thanks, Martha!
