Our blueberry bush is groaning with fruit at the moment. Most years the birds got more than their share, until we foiled their evil designs by throwing a net over the hard-working bush. The other morning I was greeted by a blackbird stuffed to perfection, and wanting help getting out!
We’re going to try making blueberry ice cream and a few other treats but our all-time favourite is this muffin recipe, created by Kelsy Fletcher. (For more seriously drool-making dishes, check out Kelysy’s website, Miss Cookie, here. ) These muffins never fails to please. In fact, I’d go as far as saying this is the best blueberry muffin recipe ever. Crunchy on top, popping with tasty blueberries, moist, flavoursome – just delectable.
It is simple to make and I imagine would freeze well – but they don’t last long. Must be time to send the husband out a-harvesting again.
And, yes, being soft of heart, I let that bad bird out.
3/4 cup soft brown sugar
