Wild About Blueberries
Lynne talks about putting some of them in the freezer for a treat during the winter months. Always a good idea with fresh fruit. The seasons are so short, you have to try to keep some for later--if you can avoid eating all of them first. Jake loves eating frozen blueberries--it's like eating flavored ice! It makes a real mess in his mouth, too.
We usually go Down East in September, but a couple of years ago, we went in July and these pictures are from a hike up a mountain in Acadia National Park. We took a break at the summit to drink some water and eat some berries. A nice refreshing way to catch our breath.
So enjoy the blueberries grown locally while they last. And if you can someday, drive north and eat some local berries right off the bushes.
