I'm thawing frozen wild blueberries to serve for dessert. How do you serve them once they

are thawed and mushy? Should i serve it with cream, stevia, raw unprocessed cane sugar, maple syrup, milk, vanilla, honey??? I like the wild berries because they are blue all the way through unlike the big cultivated one. But they taste 'woodsy'. They need a little help.

6. Frozen blueberries are not hard on teeth, providing they're not stuck together in a glob.

When out of fresh berries, I use about 1/3 cup frozen on my cold cereal.
By the time I get to each individual berry, it's soft enough, from the few minutes in cold milk, to be "just right".

I realize there's some levity in your response - not 100% serious...

3. you could mix with whipped cream and some crushed cookies...

....and that would be similar to Strawberries Romanoff. I realize this calls for the cream and cookies in the house. LOL.

A simple Romanoff is made with crushed coconut macaroons or shortbread, whipped cream, berries, and a jigger of cointreau or some other booze.

12. We used to have them with

the cream my mom separated from the milk we got from the dairy farm up the road with a little maple syrup. Sometimes we'd have them over ice cream which is pretty sweet anyway. A little cake-like something is good too. Or just put them in pancake batter.

14. My sister makes a killer Blueberry Buttermilk Tart. It is one of our family's favorite

desserts. It is on the Epicurious website. https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/blueberry-buttermilk-tart-10539.

Blueberry muffins and pancakes also come to mind. When I freeze our homegrown blueberries, I don't wash them before putting in freezer bags. When I am ready to use, I put them in a colander and rinse well under cold water. Since we don't use any chemicals on our bushes, the only things we would be washing off would be bugs, dog pee and such.

15. Don't defrost and use them to make magic ice cream

Pop them in a ziplock bag with heavy cream and your sweetener of choice (and a dash of vanilla). Seal the bag and shake it like mad. The cream will freeze to the berries and make a delicious treat!
