I headed to Noda Farm to pick blueberries. The bushes were laden with fruit and picking was easy. Noda Farm is a lovely place to pick berries because their bushes are large and well kept. Picking is easy because you don’t have to crouch down and the large bushes provide shade. I was able to pick 8.5 lbs of berries in about 45 minutes. I would love to share pictures with you, but my phone was dead.
Back home, the blueberries went into some blueberry jam (9 half-pints), and into a recipe for Blueberry Boy Bait from Cooks Illustrated. I also froze a bunch for pancakes and smoothies this winter.
Blueberries and maple syrup are two New England food trends that I can really get behind.

I’m with you on this one. I love blueberries and maple syrup too. I love a blueberry pancake with a fried egg on top. I just eat the yellow part though and the dog get the white part.

I don’t think I would like a fried egg on my pancakes. Mostly because I don’t like syrup and eggs together at all. Eew.
