It's looking like a very hot week. We've got ice water, shade, cold drinks, and beautiful picnic spots to chill out in, but make sure you bring a hat and some sunscreen. I'm sure no one is thinking of baking today, but what about some nice cold blueberry sorbet? Epicurious' Simply Blueberry Sorbet recipe looks easy and delicious. I would add some lemon zest, juice, and if you really want some zing, lemon extract to this. I'm a big fan of lemon and blueberry together.
I'm not doing a ton of baking or even making right now, but every day I make up a big bowl of granola and yogurt and walk out into the field to check things out. I toss blueberries into my bowl as I walk, and see what the varieties are up to. It's so interesting to see how they change over the picking cycle. I'm generally a Blue Gold gal, but recently, I've been all about the Libertys. The skins thicken a bit in the heat, and make them a bit toothier, and I really find it wonderful. The sugars condense and give them an even sweeter taste than the Legacys. Give them a try!
We think we'll have a week- maybe a week and a half- left in the field, so don't delay. Please feel free to check the Facebook feed, our Instagram or give us a call if you have questions.
See you on the farm!
