Tastes like Blue

For today’s Ten on Tuesday, Carole’s prompt is 10 Favorite Blueberry Recipes. I’ll modify this a bit by going with 10 favorite blueberry tastes – some are recipes and some are not.

That time I rented a blueberry bush

That time I rented a blueberry bush

  1. Blueberry Infused Water – This summer, blueberries are making a frequent appearance in the infuser core of my water pitcher – often paired with mint and maybe lemon or cucumbers. So refreshing!
  2. Blueberry Coffee – While normally I’m not a fan of fruit flavored coffee, this is a winner. At home, I toss some ground cinnamon in the French press with the coffee grounds – the cinnamon really enhances the flavor. My favorite is from Door County Coffee and Tea.
  3. Berry Dressing – I discovered this recipe earlier this year and it has been a delightful addition to both salads and assortments of roasted vegetables
  4. Blueberry Butter – A simple crockpot recipe for making blueberry preserves to can
  5. Blueberry Jam – One of the first jams I canned during my first foray into canning in 2009.
  6. Blueberry Beer – For something different, I’ve been known to select the “local” blueberry brew at breweries/restaurants. The last time I did this (in February in Florida) the pint glass included a couple of fresh blueberries.
  7. Blueberry Egg Bake – I discovered this recipe during my 1st Whole 30 adventure and tweaked the recipe a bit – I have come back to it several times – it is a nice make ahead breakfast option for the weekday mornings.
  8. Blueberry French Toast Casserole (in the crockpot) – I think it has been 9 years since I first made this recipe – it is a fun twist on french toast and bonus for breakfast crockpot use.
  9. Blueberry Yogurt Parfaits – A handful of blueberries…a dollop of yogurt (normally plain Greek)…a dash of cinnamon…a bit of granola…maybe some walnuts…a simple meal or snack at anytime
  10. By the handful – Blueberries are a great snack! The sweetest version of this was in 2009 when I rented a blueberry bush in Michigan and came home with 17 pints of berries from “my” bush. While I rented again in 2010, I wasn’t able to make it over to pick the berries so the farm harvested them & cold shipped them to Artisan Mom instead.
