Have you ever read the book, Blueberries for Sal?

It’s about a young girl who is picking blueberries with her mom and ends up finding a bear doing the same thing.

I had my own version of it when I was a kid.

My family was out picking blueberries in the woods. My dad had gone up ahead of everyone. Suddenly, he came running back down the trail, yelling for us all to get to the car fast. There was a bear up the trail from us picking blueberries too.

We made it back to the car without ever seeing the bear. I still remember being in the backseat, scared beyond belief, locking the doors. Because that would keep a bear away, right?

Through the years, I always remember that story whenever we are out hiking and stumble upon a patch of wild blueberries.

Over the weekend, Ron and I split the kids up for date days with each. The girls went back to school shopping and out to lunch. The boys went hiking. I really wanted to go hiking too but I took one for the team this time around.

As luck would have it, the boys picked the right marvelous mountain to hike. It’s known for having oodles of wild blueberries at the summit. Ron was prepared with containers just in case the blueberries were still around. And were they ever. He said it’s the best bunch he’s ever seen up there.

So when the boys came home with fresh blueberries, I knew I had to make something yummy.

And if you are wondering, they didn’t get chased by any bears.

If you’ve never had wild blueberries, you’ve never had a true blueberry. They are so much sweeter and flavorful than any other blueberry you’ll find despite their small size.

I had fresh garden zucchini that I was going to make my Easy Morning Glory Muffins with. Why not add blueberries?

    apropos of nothing
    my GREEK YOGURT HATING child announced it’s her new fave.
    (!?!)
    So, now, THIS is my new fave, too.

  2. So glad I found this post…are you overloaded with zucchini?…loved that question I have it coming out my ears!!! We only have 3 plants but goodness they are going at it…I pick at least 2-3 a day!

    I will be making these and many more of your recipes!

  3. OMG I want to eat those off the screen right now!!! I love how you can just pick wild blueberries on a hike – how cool is that? As for bears, we had one roaming our neighborhood over the weekend. It’s on the opposite side of the street from us so that will totally keep me safe, right? UGH!!!

  4. Wild blueberries- yum!! We go berry picking a lot but I don’t think they’ve ever been the wild ones- although I do love to get the frozen wild blueberries, so good!

    I had one run in with a bear when we were camping and I decided to go on a short run… so I was alone on a trail and we both freaked each other out! I was able to back up slowly and he moved off the trail by the time I looked back but my heart still pounds when I think about it.
