I picked 2 gallons of blueberries this morning and plan to freeze some. Trying to decide what to do with the rest.

Any ideas? Blueberry pie sounds really good but I don't have a recipe.

Hey we just picked today too! I'm going to keep a bunch in the fridge for eating fresh this weekend (family coming). I'll put some in a fruit salad tomorrow night. I think I'm going to make some blueberry muffins today to have available for snacks this weekend. Then I'll probably put the rest in the freezer in quart bags. Other things I've done:

Blueberry pie--I've got a recipe with a crumb top that I love, but it calls for tapioca to thicken it and that never turns out right for me--just clumps of tapioca in it. So I need to experiment with other methods to thicken it.

Blueberry lemon pound cake. Delicious! It's on the cover of my Cooking Light cookbook.

An upside down cake where the topping is 1 cup blueberries, 1 cup rasberries, and 1 cup blackberries. Yum!

Most everyday I eat a yogurt parfait with a couple of spoonfuls of a natural vanilla yogurt, maybe 1/2 or 3/4 cup blueberries, and 2 T. granola.

ETA: Let me know if you want any of the recipes.

Blueberry pancakes
Blueberry muffins
4th of July cake (any cake frosted with whipped cream, and then blueberries for stars and strawberries in lines for the red, whipped cream for the white stripes <g>)
Put them in fruit smoothies Smile

I mostly freeze them and use them during the year for blueberry muffins, which are the kids' favorites.

This is a recipe by Giada De Laurentiis for Almond Blueberry Cookies that my family loves. I'll be baking a big batch tomorrow for a 4th of July family gathering. It calls for frozen blueberries, but fresh can be used.

Almond Blueberry Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg york
1/4 to 1/3 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons lemon zest, about 1 lemon
1/2 cup chopped almonds, toasted
1 cup frozen blueberries, thawed and drained

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
In another medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar using a hand mixer. Add egg and beat to incorporate. Add milk, almond extract, and lemon zest.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in the almonds, then the blueberries. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Using two small spoons, dollop mix onto cookie sheets. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes.

Cool the cookies on a wire rack. Save in a storage container to take to the picnic.

Well, I found an easy online recipe for blueberry pie (using cornstarch instead of tapioca, since it's what we had on hand) and made it last night. We used the sugar-free version.

This morning it's all but gone so I'm planning to make blueberry coffee cake with the rest of the fresh berries. (I froze 18-20 cups yesterday.)

Hmmm... may have to thaw some out to make those almond blueberry cookies. They sound delish!!

I use them on salads: mixed baby greens, grilled chicken, slivered almonds, blue cheese crumbles/dressing!

Well, this is a late response but here is a link for blueberry pudding cake, one of our family's favorites. It has been a while since I've made this but I remember that I decreased the amount of sugar. Other than that, I didn't make any other adjustments.
