All Blueberries Not Created Equal

Some are cloudy blue; some are shiny darker blue
Blueberries are so much fun to pick, and I am fortunate to have a friend with a large field of bushes who shares freely with friends. It is best to go early in the morning before the summer heat is unbearable.  There are several varieties--all good. Most have a cloudy look to their blue color. Another variety is shiny and almost black. Which is the favorite? Whichever one you just ate! You can see two kinds in the picture above, cloudy ones on left; shiny ones on right.


Bushes are higher than my head



They almost fall off in your hand
Freeze them in bags to enjoy later

I love, love, love blueberries and eat them just about every day, year round. When they are in season, like right now, I freeze pounds of them to enjoy in the winter.
