A Blueberry Bash!

Whole Foods had organic blueberries on sale last week for $1.99 and I am not ashamed to say that I sent my husband to the store (with a potty-training picky in tow) to purchase 36 pints of blueberries.  

Yes.  36 pints.  What did I do with that many blueberries?

I made jam.
I froze about 16 pints for smoothies and baked goods.
I dehydrated them for cereal and oatmeal (EPIC FAIL).
I made blueberry scones.
I made two blueberry crumbles from this delicious recipe:
(recipe from Whole Foods Market:  http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/734)

Ingredients

6 cups blueberries 
1 tablespoon flour 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2/3 cup flour 
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1/2 cup oats 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
4 1/2 tablespoons butter

Method

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse fruit and drain thoroughly. Put berries in a mixing bowl and add lemon juice and one tablespoon flour. Combine, and pour into a 10' pie plate. In a food processor, pulse together the remaining ingredients until they resemble coarse breadcrumbs. Cover the berries with the topping and bake for thirty minutes until the top has browned and the fruit is bubbling. 


'Tis the season to preserve the delicious fruits and vegetables that this glorious season has to offer.  Do you can or do anything to preserve fruits or veggies?

Good thing that blueberries are super healthy for you because I think I may turn into one!
