The blueberries are finally ripe and I went with friends to a U-pick blueberry farm up in Dade City. It is by far my most favorite place ever to pick blueberries. I went with 2 old friends from my junior high days. If someone would of told me xx years ago that is what I’d be doing on beautiful April day in Florida I would of laughed. I’m from Michigan and growing up I could never imagine leaving the snow and exchanging it for palm trees but I have. It threatened to rain while we were picking so we had a great breeze the entire time we were there.

Today I got busy with the remaining berries I didn’t freeze and made some Blueberry Grand Marnier Jam to go with these delicious blueberry biscuits. I modified my favorite biscuit recipe and added a cup of blueberries to the dough and then glazed them with a sweet vanilla glaze when they came out of the oven.

    These look awesome. I’ll give them a try when we land up north. I’m still looking for a way to use pineapple and blueberries in the same recipe…hint, hint. It was fun picking those berries and I know I’ll enjoy eating them!! :)

      They were really good! I’m thinking on that one still! LOL… It was fun picking them, loved the breeze too. Last year it was so hot! Most of mine are in the freezer. I have a couple recipes to publish but trying not to post them in a row. I made an awesome Grand Marnier Blueberry Jam to go with those biscuits.
