Blueberry Recipes

Jones Farm Blueberries These are recipes you can use when you have an abundance of blueberries. Enjoy some Blueberry Squares, which are sort of like a bar cookie, and my favorite is the Blueberry Muffins.

How do you like that picture of blueberries? That's me at a blueberry farm picking them. Those blueberries were huge. See some more pictures of Jones Blueberry Farm

Freezing Blueberries Tip: Wrap your basket of blueberries from the store in foil or plastic wrap, put right in the freezer, and they will keep their shape.

Blueberry Pie 2

  • 2 1/2 cups berries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Line a deep plate with Plain Paste, fill with berries slightly dredged with flour; sprinkle with sugar and salt, cover, and bake forty-five to fifty minutes in a moderate oven. For sweetening, some prefer to use one-third molasses, the remaining two-thirds to be sugar.

Six green grapes (from which seeds have been removed) cut in small pieces much improve the flavor, particularly where huckleberries are used in place of blueberries.
