Ways to use up all those blueberries….

It’s blueberry season and maybe you are picking them or bought a ton from your local library- here are some ways to use them up.

Freeze them for smoothies or a snack with almond milk (see previous posts). Rinse them then place on a baking sheet and flash freeze. Take out after a hour or two then place in a freezer bag or container. Be sure to do this first because if you just throw them into a bag to freeze they will clump together.

Blueberry Compote- place 2 cups blueberries in a medium size pot and add two tablespoons of sugar and bring to a boil then reduce and simmer for five minutes. Add juice of a half lemon. You can add a little cornstarch but I don’t like mine too thick. Serve with flourless pancakes, Belgian waffles, yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, cheesecake or pound cake. The possibilities are endless.

The end product!
