I've been using up the last of the ten pound box of local blueberries I bought last week. So far we have had blueberry scones , blueberry muffins, a blueberry upside down cake and breakfast this morning was blueberry pancakes. And I have a blueberry pie in the oven as I type.
I used my favourite pancake recipe but rather than add the berries to the batter I cooked the blueberries with a bit of sugar and fresh lemon juice for about five minutes. Just long enough to make a sauce but not long enough for the berries to cook down to nothing.
