Wild Blueberry Muffins

Amy ConleyWe were so fortunate to have purchased land that is loaded with wild blueberries. They are smaller than your average blueberry, but they are delicious. It is very time consuming to pick them, but so worth it. Last summer was my best season, and I think I picked more than 30 pounds of blueberries. My husband and boys helped too, but I am by far the fastest picker. I would say it takes an hour a pound because they are small, and I have to find the best bushes. There is nothing like wandering around paths and woods looking for the largest berries. I tried counting the bushes once and there must have been hundreds of them, and they all grow together. I have been trimming the best bushes to get ready for the upcoming season and thinking of all the yummy things I can make with my blueberries.

Blueberry Picking

The best part about picking berries is freezing them for use over the winter. I love using them in oatmeal, smoothies, crisps, muffins, and the list goes on. I enjoy these frozen beauties almost everyday until the next season begins. I hope you enjoy my muffin recipe.

30 pounds! That is so great. We used some for wine this year - it's 1/2 rhubarb and 1/2 blueberry. A good way to use excess blueberry harvest. :)
