kurplink, kurplank, kurplunk…

As a girl I loved the book Blueberries for Sal.  It is about a little girl named Sal who while picking blueberries ate them faster than they would go into her bucket.  Last week the Guncles took their niece Madeline to the berry patch just south of us, they shared their bounty, 2 very large bags of blueberries.

I have spent the last week freezing berries and baking.  My boys have a permanent blue tint to them these days.

I found that if you lay the berries flat and freeze them first they won’t clump together when put in a bag for the freezer.


I am getting quite a bit of use from my food sealer that my Uncle Wayne gave us for Christmas. 


We will have blueberries for a while this winter.  Thanks Jeremy and Brandon.


  1. I love Blueberries for Sal! It was one of the first books I bought for my kids. A vintage thrifted copy of course. :)

  2. That's a lot of blueberries -- you're sure to appreciate this load come winter.

  3. jewels for the winter...I always loved that book too. Enjoy your bounty and have a great weekend.

  4. I love blueberries. What a great stockpile you'll have!

  5. Blueberries for Sal is still one of my favorite kids books. And blueberries! We can't get enough of them at our house either. Thanks for the comment and follow on my blog. I'll be back to yours too. Lots of fun recipes!
