Here are some of my favorite blueberry recipes, and a few from my favorite bloggers! If you’re wondering what to do with lots of blueberries, we’ve got you covered 🙂
What goes well with blueberries?
Blueberries go with almost any dish. Pair with cinnamon, cardamom, lemon, ginger, lavender, or shallots to bring out the sweetness of this fruit.
Some recipes even pair blueberries over the tops of steak or pork. I’ll have to give that one a try!
This fruit is super versatile and packed with antioxidants. It’s like a nutrient punch for each recipe!
“What can I do with a lot of berries?
If you find yourself in such a predicament, wash and dry all of your extra berries, then freeze.
You can flash freeze them on a baking sheet before storing in a freezer bag, but this step isn’t necessary as blueberries don’t usually stick when frozen. Just make sure they are dry when you put them in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container, and you’re all set!
Frozen blueberries are great in many things, from smoothies and blended drinks, to sauces and baking.
Tips for Cooking with Frozen Blueberries:
- For most recipes that call for frozen blueberries, the blueberries should remain frozen. Thawing blueberries before adding to baking can lead to squashed berries and leaking color!
- To prevent frozen berries from sinking and from coloring everything purple, some people recommend tossing frozen berries with a tiny bit of flour before adding to baked goods.
- Add frozen blueberries to baked goods last, so they won’t thaw and discolor your baking before you get it in the oven
