Newbury Blueberries!

I headed up to my parent's house on Saturday to pick blueberries.  They have a single massive blueberry bush in their back yard; it must be 8 or 10 feet tall.  It produces a ton of berries each year.  They're tiny, like wild blueberries, and very flavorful.  They're great for cooking.  I try to make the pilgrimage for Newbury blueberries every year.

My mother and I spent part of the early afternoon picking berries.  I brought home over ten cups of them.  Woot!  I can make lots of blueberry cakes and muffins from that.  After picking over the berries a few times, I spread them out on cloth-lined cookie sheets and froze them.  Once they're frozen, I stored them in Ziploc bags.  I'm all set for better baking weather (hmmm... maybe tonight!).
