Author Notes: My mother's family had a little place in Maine that we visited in the summers. These muffins were on the table at least once a day, overflowing with fresh picked wild blueberries. They are not very sweet, and were often served at supper, along with fried chicken and corn on the cob. I don't know if the recipe was my grandmother's or my mother's, but I'm continuing the family tradition by serving them often when blueberries are in season.MrsWheelbarrow
