Sound like good fodder for a morning smoothie to me.

I love frozen berries in cereal. They make the milk icey cold and add great flavor! No cooking required :)

I suggest making some blueberry topped cookies or a blueberry topped cheese cake.

If you'd like to make a blueberry topping for cheesecakes and desserts, here's a recipe:


12 Oz Blueberries (frozen is OK)
⅓ C Sugar
⅓ C Water
2 tsp Corn Starch
2 Tb Lemon Juice

Combine the berries, water and sugar in a saucepan and cook for 10 minutes.

Stir the cornstarch into the lemon juice and stir it into the berries. Bring it to a boil. Cook for another 3-4 minutes.

The single, most amazing, and satisfying thing you can do with fresh blueberries is to cup your hands together, and fill to overflowing with the little blue gems, and stuff all of them in your mouth, quick!. Then chew the best you can and swallow. You must take care not to dribble any of the blueberry juice. It's the most intense blueberry flavor that can be had. Do it once, with freshly picked, Michigan low-bush wild blueberries, straight from the bush, and you will think you've been somehow taken to paradise. Really. I'm not kidding. If there is no other reason to travel to the U.P., that one act is enough.

How about infusing some vodka with the berries for a few weeks ;)
