Blueberries go mainstream in July

July is National Blueberry Month. Our blueberries are coming in strong right now, so that makes sense. I freeze them in pint bags. They’re so easy. You don’t wash them before freezing — just throw them in the bags and rinse when you take them out of the freezer before using.

The reason for specifying a cast iron skillet for making the blueberry upside-down cake is because that is what my Grandmama used for pineapple upside-down cake and it really cuts down on cleanup if you prepare, bake and serve in this old standby.

I hope you’ll enjoy these. One of the bonuses of eating blueberries is that they are good for you. Now isn’t that good news?
