Homemade Blueberry Muffins

Erin SheehanA family friend owns a blueberry patch with a couple hundred large bushes. The patch has early, mid and late ripening berries, so the picking is good from August right through early September. It’s a bit of a long drive for us to go there so we try to make every visit worthwhile. We went a few weeks back and picked nearly 19 pounds of delicious, plump berries. About half went straight into two batches of rhubarb-blueberry wine, but we set a few berries aside to make goodies like blueberry muffins, waffles, and pancakes.


One thing I’ve noticed about older cookbooks is the lack of muffin recipes. My grandmother’s cookbook/recipe stash has exactly two muffin recipes: bran and corn. Yuk! I guess people just didn’t make a lot of muffins back then. If anyone knows why or has their hands on pre-1940 fruit muffin recipes, I would love to hear from you about this.
