A Great New Recipe

1 Comment

While looking for new blueberry recipes to try, I came across a great recipe for Blueberry Streusel Muffins. The house was soon full of the wonderful scent of blueberries, cinnamon, and sugar. I brought the tasty treats in to the staff the next day, and the muffins received rave reviews from everyone who tried them. This recipe is certainly a keeper!

 

Here at the farm, the blueberries are already well into peak season, and so it is time to take advantage of them while they are here! Thankfully, blueberries are very easy to freeze for use during the rest of the year. Place dry berries into freezer bags, and freeze in the freezer. Frozen berries are great in a variety of dishes. When using frozen berries in a baking recipe, do not thaw the berries; use them in the recipe frozen for the best results.
