Freezer Friday: Blueberries

freezerfridaysmOne of my favorite things about where we live is the organic blueberry orchard where we pick every year.  Their bushes are all 5 to 7 feet tall and picking is easy!  So far we've made it home with about 6 quarts of berries for less than $12 - can't beat that!  And it's a fun family outing to boot!

I portioned some of the blueberries for HV Blueberry Bread and pies and sent them to the freezer.  The rest I loaded into the dehydrator:
