16 Reasons We've Got the Blues(berries)

"Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb," Robert Frost's poem, "Blueberries," begins. "Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum." We here at Food52, though, are accepting of all blueberries: small, medium, and thumb tip-sized. Size doesn't matter when they're all covered in crumble, put into pancakes, or swirled inside cinnamon rolls. Here are 16 recipes that prove it's easy being blue—and a blueberry.

Not a recipe really - just what I eat in one form or another, day after day, and never get tired of it, during the 6 - 8 weeks or so that our blueberry bushes are bearing: https://instagram.com/p/5k7LqmGB1z/?taken-by=howmothercooks<br /><br />For special occasions, this pie is a favorite of friends and family: https://instagram.com/p/6A5IpTGByH/?taken-by=howmothercooks<br /><br />But seriously, the best way to eat blueberries is by the handful, warm off the bush, picked while listening to baseball on the radio. A great reason to plant blueberry bushes, if you can. ;o)
