Local Louisville: Bryant’s Blueberries

When my lovely friend Patty asked if I wanted to go blueberry picking with her this weekend, I excitedly jumped at the opportunity.  You-pick-it farms have always seemed charming but somewhat intimidating to this city girl, so this was an adventure for me.  Luckily,  Bryant’s Blueberries in Southern Indiana is having a bumper crop this season, which means we walked through rows and rows of blueberry bushes full of sweet berries – and there was absolutely nothing intimating about popping those little babies off and dropping them into your mouth basket. 

Now my dear friends I must ask you: What in the heck am I going to do with seven pounds of blueberries?  So far we’ve been eating them fresh by the fistfuls, but I need your favorite recipes, please!  I’m fearful of turning into Violet Beauregarde over here.

  3. You are so lucky to have all those blueberries! The first thing I'd do is freeze a lot of them for future use, including the smoothies I make for my husband in the morning and his evening snack, which is no-fat Greek yogut with berries.

  4. We also went blueberry picking yesterday and ended up with several pounds of blueberries. I have absolutely no idea what to do with them other than just eat them! Blueberry pancakes or muffins do sound delicious though...

  6. This really looks so fun! The only thing I like to make with Blueberries is muffins. I don't like the blueberry pies. :)
