    Blueberry Recipes

    I just picked a five gallon bucket of fresh blueberries, so I'm looking for all sorts of wonderful tried and true recipes for them as well as various canning recipes. Last year I made blueberry jam with some of them.

    I dearly love blueberry jam. I make icecream, blueberry muffins, waffles and freeze a lot of blueberries. Lay them on a flat tray freeze then put in freezer bags. I don't have recipes, I just check the web etc.

    Each year we buy 150+ pounds of blueberries from the Mossy Rock area in Western Washington, bring them home and quickly get them into 1 gallon Ziplock bags and freeze them. When I need blueberries for a recipe I just shake out what I need and zip it back up and put the remainder back in the freezer. We use them for blueberry pies, muffins and other goodies. I want to try to make blueberry syrup this year.

    Here is my most used recipe:

    Hubby Approved Blueberry Pie

    I have been baking blueberry pie for several years now, using various recipes. Sometimes I hit it right on the taste approval mark and sometimes I am off. I recently made one that tasted great but leaked all over the foil that was under the pie tin while baking. To make this story a little shorter I will just cut to the recipe. Please keep in mind that the following recipe which I have developed is a way that works for me. Hopefully, it will work for you.
    Please read through entire recipe before starting.

    Set premade pie dough rolls out to warm on counter at least a half hour. Mine were room temperature but not warm.

    Blueberries: thaw and drain (if you have to rebag and refrigerate overnight due to time, strain your blueberries again) Save the juice for blueberry syrup to pour over ice cream, pancakes, yogurt, etc.


    6 Cups of blueberries, thawed and drained
    1 Tablespoon of bottled lemon juice
    Cup of instant tapioca
    1 Cup of Splenda, there is room to play with this amount ~ Hubby like it a wee bit sweet
    Cup of sugar, granulated, adjust to your sweetness liking
    2 Tablespoons of butter, soft or melted
    Optional: 2 tsp. to 1 T. of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg

    Bake 450-20-25 min. 350-35-45

    Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, except butter, and toss until well mixed. Let this mixture set for up to 30 minutes. Unroll your pie dough and lay out in the bottom of a 8” or 9” pie tin. Pour blueberry mixture in and spread out. Pour melted butter evenly around the blueberries or put small amounts of soft butter evenly around the top of the blueberries. Unroll and lay out the second pie crust over the top of the blueberries. Seal the edges of the pie and crimp with your fingers.

    I lay a sheet of aluminum foil on top of my cookie sheet because I don’t like cleaning baked on pie drippings of my cookie sheet or the bottom of my oven. Place the pie on top of the foil/cookie sheet and put it in a preheated 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.

    THEN, turn your oven down to 350 degrees and bake for 30-45 minutes or until done. The times are approximate, you be the judge. I usually look for it to be bubbling and look for it not to be too runny before I will take it out of the oven. The foil and cookie sheet may make it take longer than expected to reach this stage of doneness. Let it sit for an hour before slicing… unless you just can’t stand it. Cooling gives it a chance to set up a bit. However, usually Hubby doesn’t want to wait that long.


    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now I see.

    Blueberry Crunch

    Start with glass 9x13 pan, sprayed with Pam
    Add ingredients as listed:
    large can of crushed pineapple
    3 cups of frozen (but washed) blueberries
    If blueberries are not sweet,you can add a little sugar at the point. (I never do)
    1 box of yellow or white cake mix (dry)
    1 stick of butter melted
    I run the tines of a fork along the dry cake mix to keep the butter from running to the same spot.

    If you like nuts, you can add about a cup before you add the cake mix.
    Cook for about 30-40 minutes at 350 and enjoy. Sometimes we add ice cream. Great for pot luck dinners.

    Here is one that my work buddy gave me in 1984 and I love it, but it does make enough for at least 12 people.

    Fran's Banana Split Cake

    2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    cup melted butter
    cup sugar

    Combine crumbs, butter & sugar and mix well. Press into a 13 x 9 x 2 " pan and chill for 1 hour.

    2 cups icing sugar
    cup softened butter
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla

    Cream icing sugar and butter; add egg and vanilla. Blend well and spread over crumb mixture and chill for 1 hour longer.

    4 bananas
    blueberries/strawberries or raspberries
    2 cups whipped cream
    2 small tins pineapple tidbits (about 3 cups total estimate)
    1 cup chopped walnuts

    Slice bananas and place on cake. Place a layer of berries over the bananas. Drain the pineapple well and place a layer over the berries. Spread the whipped cream on top and cover with walnuts. Chill.... just typing this makes me hungry for some! Enjoy!

    Speaking of blueberries, I know you shouldn't wash before freezing as that makes them stick together in freezer, but when you are ready to use them, do you wash them while frozen, or wait for them to thaw.
    Good friends are like stars; you don't always see them, but you know they're always there!

    I always wash before freezing. I let them drain, then freezer on cookie sheets before transferring to freezer bags. Clean berries that do not stick. I do this with all the berries I freeze.

    I have 16 plants, some 30 years old. I don't wash them. I spread them on a sheet pan, look at them very close, pick out bad ones. If I have to pick them when wet I lay a paper towel under them on sheet pan, let them dry. My favorite storage is zip lock plastic containers, or the zipper freezer bag. My main use is smoothies. If using from a frozen state in pies, I thaw some on burner slowly with sugar, spices, a little butter till they get juicy,then thicken with corn starch or flour,then add the rest of the frozen berries to the thicken berries. That seems to keep some berries whole in the pie filling. Ps my berries are not sprayed with chemicals.
