Blueberry Pancakes!

The local gourmet cooking store does crop shares every year.  When I worked there, I used to consider doing the salad share every spring, but watching those boxes come through every week, I knew I’d never use enough of the vegetables to make it worthwhile.  The fruit share though?  Those I could do.  Normally I just get the blueberries, but one year I also bought cherries and that was just way too much fruit to try to eat.  I gave a lot away that year.

The share is ten pounds of blueberries.  I freeze some, I eat some, I give some to friends and family.  They are big and juicy and so sweet, they are the perfect summer snack.  I eat them on my breakfast every morning, but I need to start using them in other ways too.  So tonight for dinner it was blueberry pancakes!  I have a great pumpkin pancake recipe that I love, but no go to blueberry pancake recipes.  I looked through a few cookbooks before settling on the recipe in my Good Housekeeping cookbook.  Since I had Greek yogurt in the fridge, I added that in for a little extra tang. I think blueberry pancakes need to be a little thicker to balance out the blueberries, and these were perfect.  Not too thick, not too thin, with a nice ratio of blueberry to pancake.

Next up – blueberry muffins!
