LOOKING for: what to do w/ fresh blueberries
Well, they were cheaper than strawberries, and LOTS cheaper than cherries, and I needed a blue for July 4. So I bought a pint of them. When I realized I had no clue how to use them, I chickened out and paid almost $4 for a can of blueberry pie filling that I found decidedly yucky. Now the berries are sitting in their cute little balsa-wood basket in the fridge, just staring at me whenever I open the door and saying, "So are you going to let me just freeze to death in here, or make me the main ingredient in something wonderful?"
If I want to make a pound cake or a coffee cake, do I just add them to the batter as they are? How does one go about making a topping with them? [can they be frozen? sh-h-h] What's your favorite way to use them?
