The early varieties of blueberries are ready to pick in many areas. If they aren't ripe in your county, be patient, they soon will be. Now is the time to clean out your freezer and get ready to fill it again with bags of this year's crop.
One of my favorite ways of using fresh or frozen blueberries is to make a large Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake. The cake is sturdy and a good cake to bring to a church potluck.
If you don't have a few blueberries left in the freezer, hold on to this recipe because the blues will be here soon.
A large Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake will use up the end of last year's blueberry harvest and whet your appetite for fresh berries.
