Blueberries Are Back

pancakes and strawberries.blog

I have one more leftover burger post to make, but these blueberry pancakes, and the accompanying strawberries, were just so gorgeous that I have to show them to you. How can anything so beautiful also be so good for you?

Our special Sunday brunch is always a treat, but the fresh blueberries for the pancakes were just the icing on the cake. They are so much better than the commercially frozen ones – they burn and stick to my precious frying pan!

Our new discovery of duck eggs seem to be just the ticket for perfectly poached eggs. They hold together better, and cook in exactly four minutes – with the yolk still runny – just like we prefer.

We surely look forward to Sunday mornings! ;->

    I eat my fresh blueberries with other fruits such as strawberries, bananas, and grapes, topped with LOTS of walnut or pecan pieces! But with my protein shakes I prefer the slightly stronger flavor of the frozen berries; for pancakes I go either way – fresh or frozen. Any way you eat them they are wonderful!

    I’ve decided I can’t eat frozen berries – they are just too tart for me. I like the sweet, fresh ones when they are in season. I never buy a basket without eating one for a sweetness taste. If I have frozen – I just add a bunch of sugar, and that kind of defeats the purpose. Unless they are for a smoothie with other sweet fruits, then I can blend them in. Your brunch looks fab!

      I’ve taken to making a slurry of cornstarch and orange juice if it turns out that I need to use the frozen blueberries, and then just use it as a topping. I don’t put any extra sugar in it; the orange juice seems to be sufficient. The maple syrup on the pancakes themselves give it enough sweetness so that no extra is really needed in the blueberries. If there is any left over, I just put it on pudding or ice cream. Or just eat it as a snack if I get hungry before dinnertime.

    If I ever drop in on you, I will make it a point to do it on a Sunday! 🙂
