Every June and July you can pick blueberries at Blueberry Hill Farms. We made a trip out to Edom, Texas to pick blueberries a few weeks ago and had the best time. My boys loved it!
We left our house bright and early and arrived in Edom at 8am. I highly recommend going as early as possible because it gets hot really quick.
After we picked our blueberries, we headed to the country store where they had ice cold water in coolers on the patio for us to sip on while we cooled down. Once we were cooled down, we went inside to weigh and pay for our blueberries. They have all sorts of delicious jams, preserves, and butters to sample and purchase. They also had so many delicious looking blueberry treats to purchase. We decided on a lemon blueberry pastry and it was delicious. Blueberries are $2.85/lb and you can pick as many as you like. I felt like we picked a ton and we only got about 2lbs.
We spent less than $10 and that even included a blueberry pastry. After we left, a friend told me that their blueberry soft serve is to die for. We are already planning a second trip out to Edom to pick more blueberries and to try the amazing blueberry soft serve.
When we got home we made two of our favorite blueberry recipes… Blueberry Yogurt Bites and Blueberry Pancakes!!! I’d share pictures, but neither of them lasted long enough to even pull out the camera. So good!!
1 c. flour
½ t. soda
½ t. salt
1 t. baking powder
1 T sugar
1 cup buttermilk (more if needed)
2 T. oil (+ a little more)
Mix all of the ingredients together. Pour a little oil in the skillet and heat stove to medium. Pour batter into skillet and drop the desired amount of blueberries on the pancake. Cook until it starts to bubble, then flip! Serve with syrup and a dollop of whipped cream.
Blueberry Yogurt Raisins
Lots of Blueberries
The Greek Gods Honey Vanilla Yogurt
Pour a little yogurt into a small bowl. Pour 10-15 blueberries into the yogurt and stir until they are coated. Use mini tongs to fish the blueberries out and place them on a non-stick foil lined cookie sheet. Freeze for an hour.
