As the year goes on, more and more local produce is coming into season! I’m so excited that I’m able to run right up the road to our local Publix store and find a variety of Fresh From Florida produce. Right now, you can find things like blueberries, bell peppers, sweet corn, and watermelon all in season. The Florida farmers definitely make it easier to eat fresh all year round and I love knowing that the produce didn’t travel far to get to me. Fresh From Florida produce is so popular at my local store that they were almost sold out of several items!
I was able to stock up on the blueberries since they looked so delicious. Don’t they look amazing? My kids love having fresh fruit in the house that they can just grab and go play outside. Blueberries are among the favorites for sure.
Now that I’ve got your mouth watering for some sweet blueberries, there are plenty of other things to do with them besides just a quick snack. If you visit the Fresh From Florida website, you’re sure to find pages of recipes that will be perfect to use up your produce. I decided to find an easy one and tried making their Florida Blueberry Cobbler. It was very simple to throw together and the whole family enjoyed it! Personally, I found it to be a little sweet for my tastes, but the kids loved it and devoured every bite. Next time I think I’ll back off the sugar a bit, but there definitely will be a next time!
For starters, wash your berries and sort to make sure you’ve taken off any remaining stems. Then toss with sugar and lemon juice.
Pour your sugared blueberries into a pan over a stick of melted butter.
Combine topping ingredients, pour on top and then bake! See how incredibly simple that is! Wow! Definitely the easiest blueberry cobbler I’ve ever made! I
4 cups fresh Florida blueberries, rinsed and drained
1 cup Florida natural sugar
1 stick butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup Florida natural sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place the butter in an 8×8-inch square glass baking dish (no substitutes) and melt the butter in the microwave. In a mixing bowl, combine lemon juice and blueberries. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the blueberry mixture to the baking dish with the melted butter. Do not stir.
Combine all of the topping ingredients in a small bowl. Pour this mixture over the blueberries and bake 45 minutes, or until brown.
We served ours with some delicious vanilla ice cream on top. Perfection!
