I Think That I Shall Never See A Bad Tasting Blueberry!

Blueberry Scone Bread

It’s that wonderful time of the year.  Even with the drought, the blueberries are coming into season in Michigan.  I usually just eat them plain after washing them in a vinegar rinse to get the pesticides off.  As delicious as blueberry dishes are, I try to eat them plain because I don’t like the additional calories and added fats.  However…

I did have some getting a little soft and always cook them up with some sugar or in a dish to preserve them longer.  Waste not, want not!  The following is a blueberry Scone bread that I made and I also cooked some berries in a couple of Tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in the microwave for a few minutes to thicken into a sauce.  Then I broke down and went to a local bakery and saw they were selling pieces of their chocolate fudge cake.  I tried using the cake as a base for the blueberry sauce and it was really good!  I replace the butter and or sour cream in the scone recipe with low-fat yogurt and some mayonnaise and it tastes great with less fat.  Experiment.  Then just eat your failures or give them away.  I did not make all the dishes the same day!  You can always freeze some for a treat during the winter months.  I always cook up some fresh fruit sauces to eat during the winter months on pancakes or waffles.  Hearty meals are not a problem as long as you don’t eat like that all the time.
