I have a confession. It’s about blueberries.

I do not like blueberries.

I don’t.

I have always known deep down that I am not a blueberry fan, but I think I have been in some sort of denial.

I mean, what normal, healthy, American woman doesn’t like blueberries?


Well, unless they are in muffins.

Or a danish.

Or pancakes.

Or blueberry buckle.

Or syrup.

Or that lemon blueberry scone they make over there at the Blackbird Bakery on Bainbridge Island.

Lemon blueberry scone and double tall lattte

Oh baby, GIMME.


If the world was coming to an end there was looting and pillaging and whathaveyou… I would not grab me a TV. Or a blender. I would be all up in the bidness of lootin’ for the last lemon blueberry scone from Blackbird.

I just think blueberries in their natural state are not at all delicious. Bake ’em, mix ’em with flour, drown them in sugar.

I also feel that the taught blueberry skin married with the squishy center feels a lot like what I bet it would feel like to chomp into a roach.


Alrighty, friends. Just needed to get that off my chest.

    Aaaalllllrighty then! πŸ™‚ Blueberries….nom nom nom they are better baked into something!! I agree!! Me, I like them in muffins, cupcakes, scones, pancakes and whathaveyou…

    Ever tried them frozen? Not so squishy then. I like to put frozen ones in my yogurt. You never know . . . πŸ™‚

    I don’t care for fresh blueberries either. Baked into something – oh yeah. I do buy the dried blueberries from Sam’s Club and toss those into my cereal in the mornings. Not so squishy, more chewy then.

    Preach, sister. It’s the squishy inside, right?!?! If it was harder like a grape, I’d be all over those like a fat boy on a corn dog. And now that I think about it, damn texture for ruining so many things that would be good!

    I like them juiced, but they have kind of a musty taste that I find unpleasant. And the texture is…problematic. I DO like them dried, especially in my morning oatmeal.

  6. I LOVE Blueberries; eat them on my Cheerios or in my yogurt with bananas most mornings….although I can’t just pop ’em like candy like my kids do.

    And put them in a pancake? Or a peach crumble? Or a muffin? :swoons:

    Although, I have to say, that lemon blueberry scone sounds YUM.
