Monday Munchies: Wild Michigan Blueberries

Though I'm still plugging away at my update of Moon New Orleans – yes, it's true, I'm still not done – I'm trying hard to enjoy my summer stay in northern Michigan and take advantage of the state's berry-licious bounty. Right now, it's wild blueberry season, and due to favorable weather conditions, it already looks to be a, forgive the pun, fruitful season. Just today, I managed to gather quite a few of the yummy little devils. Now, the only question is... what to do with them? Bake some blueberry muffins, make some blueberry jam, opt for some blueberry pancakes, or simply add them to my oatmeal? Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Yum! Out here the wild blueberries are called "huckleberries", they do seem a bit more tart, but that could be because it's drier? I love to make lemon huckleberry bread. My kids' favorite way to eat them though is frozen, straight out of the freezer :-).

Yeah, folks in Michigan (well, my husband and his family at least) call them huckleberries, too. Whatever they're called, they're delicious! And, though I've never tried them frozen, that sounds tasty, too. Of course, I'd rather have the lemon huckleberry bread - yum!
