Blueberries in the Cherry Capital

After my street sale excursion yesterday, I drove up to Buchan’s Blueberry Hill to pick blueberries.

The farm is almost at the tip of the Old Mission Peninsula.  I drove the scenic Peninsula Drive to get there.  Sheer torture, I tell you!

I can’t believe I’ve lived here for 16 years and never knew about this place.  I would love to have brought my kids here.  Some of the blueberries were the size of grapes, and you could sit down in front of a bush and pick dozens in one spot!  In fact, that’s exactly what I did..

Two hours later, dripping with sweat (sorry for that visual), with 12 pounds of blueberries in my buckets, I was ready to call it quits.  I think I photographed everything BUT the blueberries in the buckets.  Oh yeah, and my body dripping with sweat.  Lucky you.

Here are some pretty pictures I took at their farm to get those awful images out of your head.

When I got home I put most of the berries directly into the freezer.  Minus the pound or so I ate in the car on the way home.

They freeze so nicely and are great to snack on.. frozen or fresh.

Yum!

This is the place where I post a scrumptious recipe that I will use with the blueberries.  Unfortunately, I don’t cook, bake, or can.  Good thing I wasn’t born a pilgrim.
