What To Make With Blueberries After Going Blueberry Picking - Recipes for Blueberry Jam, Pie, Ice Cream, Pancakes, Yogurt Berries, Salsa, Blueberry Spritzer, and a Whipped Topping Trifle
We recently went blueberry picking for the first time. It was SO much fun, but we came home with 13 pounds of blueberries and we had to figure out what to do with them all! Of course, you can freeze them or turn them all into jam, but since we went over a holiday weekend, we turned them all into foods that we could eat while we hosted a large group of family and friends at the lake house.
Here are seven recipe ideas that you can make using fresh blueberries.
1) Blueberry Jam
I made this jam by cooking 1 cup blueberries with 2 Tablespoons Honey and 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice. I cooked on medium, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes. I allowed it to cool at ambient temperature, and then plated in this red, white, and blue tray for our Fourth Of July party.
I served this sweet jam with angel food cake, shortbread cookies, and fresh fruit.
2) Blueberry Ice Cream
3) Blueberry Peach Salsa
4) Blueberry Pie
5) Blueberry Pancakes
6) Whipped Topping Fruit Trifle
