It's finally blueberry season in NY!! Every year I like to go blueberry picking at least once and last Saturday morning my friend Rachael and I went and picked blueberries. I picked 6.5 lbs in about an hour.
The blueberry patch that we go to is about 1/2 hour away from our house.
We had so much fun during our morning at the blueberry patch. I hope I can get back there at least one more time before the season is over.
We like to eat fresh blueberries but I also made blueberry pancakes on Sunday and a blueberry pie with our blueberries. I also used some of them to make blueberry margaritas for our trip to the lake on Saturday.
2 cups blueberry compote. Recipe for compote here. (note I did not add the lemon juice because I added lime juice to this recipe)
1 cup tequila
Juice from 6 limes
1/2 tsp. coarse kosher salt
Let compote cool and then mix it well in blender. Add tequila, lime juice, salt and crushed ice and blend thoroughly. I poured the drink mixture from my blender right into my Weck juice jar to take to the lake. **if I make margaritas at home I salt the edge of my glass since we were going to the lake and I didn't want to mess with that I just added a little salt to the recipe** You can leave out the salt completely if you don't like salt in your margaritas.
Here we are enjoying our drinks! These margaritas taste just like summer.
