Blueberries! and home grown Oregano!
These blueberries were so yummy! I made all sorts of blueberry recipes! Blueberry muffins, blueberry waffles, blueberry syrup etc.
Then I decided to flash freeze the rest of them so I can use them the rest of the year. If you have never flash frozen fruit before here is how you do it. You spread the fruit out in one single layer on a large cookie sheet.
Then stick it in the freezer and let them freeze until solid. Then pop them off the cookie sheet and put them in a bag. by doing this they do not stick and freeze together. You can do this with any fruit. I do not have the patience for canning fruit so I just freeze it. I froze my apricots and peaches last summer. It sure beats buying expensive frozen fruit at the store and it tastes better too :-)
Another thing I did earlier this summer was pick and dry my Oregano. I had just run out of my oregano from last years picking and so it was perfect timing :-) I have a big Oregano plant in my rock wall garden in my back yard. I clipped the whole top of the plant. Then I rinsed the clippings and let them drip dry on a paper towel.
