A few days ago I posted this on instagram
Our berry bonanza from a local blueberry farm. These are ahh-MAZ-ing! Blueberries are a regular feature in our kitchen throughout the year since they freeze perfectly. Blueberry pancakes, muffins, pies, smoothies, even in salads :: blueberries and crumbled goat cheese over arugula, my fave!
I thought I should try making blueberry scones. Actually, I’m not a big fan of scones because I don’t like the after taste of baking soda. Then, I found this scone recipe which uses fresh blueberries, lemon juice and most importantly, no baking soda!
The perfect accompaniment to a mid-morning cup of coffee. And no, I didn’t eat all of them… at once 😉
I substituted the milk with buttermilk which made them so light and fluffy and there is just enough sweetness from the berries and a tiny bit of sugar (I used less than a 1/4 cup of sugar). I also didn’t bother with the glaze.
Fresh lemon juice and lemon zest enhance the flavor of the berries. These scones got a thumbs up from Kiki so I’ll definitely be bookmarking this recipe to make again!
I’ve also got a bit of blue action happening with my crafting. A few rows of blue thrown in on my Hitchhiker Scarf.
And some tiny half square triangles with a blue theme 🙂
