A Massive Savings

For the third year, the girls and I picked blueberries. 
Have you ever done that? 
They are so easy to thorns and they fall into the bucket with a gentle sweep of your fingers. 
We picked 10 pounds of berries and paid $23.00. 
I then happened to be at the grocery store and saw their 6 ounce package of blueberries were $3.89 each!
That would have cost $105.03! 
I have cleaned, frozen them and have supported a local farmer.

Awesome! Blueberries are so expensive in the store!

Cha-ching! Wow! What a great savings! I'm wishing we had blueberries like that around here! Instead we have massive amounts of wild blackberries and black raspberries - really yummy but painful to pick!

I have recently discovered that I like blueberries. Just plain old blueberries to snack on. And they are a super food. YAY!
I would love to see how you use them in recipes.
