Blueberries I

About a week and a half ago, we drove over to Jersey to get blueberries at a u-pick farm. Completely unable to control ourselves, we came home with 12 pounds of blueberries at $1.50/lb. At my neighborhood farmers market, at Headhouse (2nd and Lombard) on Sundays, blueberries have been going for about twice that -- $3.00 or even $5.00 per pint, and "a pint is a pound the world around" -- so even adding in gas and tolls we made out like bandits:
So close you can almost see the bugs
But what to do with the blueberries? I'll post what I did with them over the next few days. First and easiest, of course, is simply rinsing them off and eating them fresh:
Bowl is from Lyncharm Pottery, a now closed studio in Nova Scotia --
the best place in the world for wild blueberries
You can't go wrong, really.

I await your description of the disposition of these blueberries with interest. I didn't come up with anything more creative than to mix them into batches of oatmeal for about the next 4-5 months.
