The blueberries are ripe down here in Alabama, so I went picking early this morning. There is a great little pick-your-own farm just 10 minutes away and they have three different cultivars of blueberries. They will ripen in series through the next month or two, so this hopefully was the first trip of several. I picked about 5 quarts and have frozen half. Here is the first batch of berries just fresh from their bath being lovingly fan-dried before a quick chill in the deep freeze.
