We picked at lovely Baumhart Berry Farm in Vermilion, Ohio. What a beautiful place to pick blueberries. It was a wonderful summer breezy day full of sunshine. The blueberries provided the happiness!
Blueberries grow on bushes. They are not that hard to pick. Look for the biggest and bluest and your good to go. Picking with kids comes in handy because the adults can pick the top of the bushes and the kids can get into the nooks and crannies of the bottom of the bushes. Perfectly ripe blueberries come right off the bush.
We picked over seven pounds of blueberries. And what did we do with our new found joy and happiness? Well we made pancakes, Lemon Honey Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Compote, of course. I can't think of a better complement to sweet blueberries than tangy lemon. Yum!!
