The many ways to use berries:

I know there are so many ways to use berries but the season is about to be upon us and I will have blueberries out the wazoo. I will be getting some strawberries from a local u-pick berry farm. I am going to list off a few things I've tried in the past. There's the usual preserves, cakes, ice cream, muffins, pancakes, & pies. Then there's Greek salad with strawberries & blue cheese, Cheddar garlic biscuits with extra chunks of Cheddar sauteed & drained onions and blueberries, blueberries in vegetable soup, ground beef pizza with blueberries and bell peppers, stuffed bell peppers with jalopenos & You guessed it - blueberries. Any other ideas on how to incorporate any kind of Berry into savory dishes or any favorite ideas or recipes of any Berry kind welcome. Let's talk berries unlimited :)

I still have 5 gallons of blueberries in my freezer from last year. We have a "few" blueberry bushes...ahem... a few dozen or 50 or so. When you come to our house, I'm telling you - it's the Bubba Gump of blueberries, you never know where you'll find a blueberry. I have even put them in chili before - wouldn't recommend that one though. It wasn't bad, but simply a waste of blueberries.
