The ones that grow wild are low growing bushes with smaller berries but they are all taste. High-bush blueberries have much bigger berries and grow on taller bushes which make them much easier to pick.
When you have have a few buckets full, you’ll want to make a blueberry pie!
Fresh Blueberry Pie
1 pie shell with a fairly thick crust
enough blueberries to fill your pie shell
Bake the pie shell and let it cool. Pile blueberries into your cooled pie shell.
1 cup blueberries (this is in addition to those you put in your pie shell)
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
Cook blueberries and water in saucepan for about 2 minutes. Sieve mixture if you want (you don’t have to). Combine sugar and cornstarch and stir into fruit. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
Pour the glaze on very slowly to allow it to seep through to the bottom of the berries.
Let stand for 5-6 hours.
Eat it all up, as it doesn’t keep very well (:
