Debating: What to Make With Fresh Blueberries?

By: Michelle Buffardi

Something amazing happened today. Stemilt World Famous Fruit sent us a whole bunch of sweet, plump blueberries fresh from their farm in Washington State. As you may know, farm-fresh fruit never lasts in my house, I prefer to eat it over the sink, sometimes washed, sometimes not. But I'm determined to make something great with these berries; after all, we're nearing the end of berry season, and I won't have a chance for another year. But what to make? I'm torn and overwhelmed . . . you guys decide.

Option A: David Rocco's Zabaglione With Creme, topped with blueberries and mint.

Option B: Aida's Cakey Buttermilk Pancakes, covered in blueberry syrup.

Option C: David Lieberman's Blueberry Pecan Crumble.

Option D: Sara's Quick Muffins -- this is a great basic muffin recipe that you can mix any combo of fruits and nuts into. I'd choose blueberries, natch.

So what should I make? I'm leaving it up to you guys, leave a comment and help me choose.

And a great, big thank you to Stemilt farms for letting us try their berries! They'll ship their fresh organic fruit to you too, so check them out even if you're far from Washington State like we are.
