My dear, sweet friend, Ruthie came to visit me here on Oldfather Farms a few months. We had four full days of picking fruit, eating fruit and relaxing in each others company. What a blessing she is to me. As we were tooling around the country side we came across a U-Pick-it blueberry farm… organic to boot! How could we pass that up?! The day was gorgeous and we were in fine company as we made our way out into the fields of blueberry, hopping from bush after blueberry bush. A fair amount of the bushes were either well picked over or had clusters of berries that still needed a dose of purple sweet juice injected into them (meaning unripe) but we did manage to come up for a little over 2 lbs worth in a short time. We then went to the Farmers Market the following evening and picked up 1/2 a case worth of organic blueberries, in which someone else labored over and we reaped the benefit of their hard work.

Once the chews are dried, mind you, our goal is to make sure that we don’t over dry these, (we want some moisture so that it will have a chewy texture), you can then cut them into small squares. I used a ruler and a pairing knife to make the cuts. Just lay the ruler on the batter and slide down the ruler edge with the tip of the pairing knife. Do this on both sides of the ruler. Then once all the horizontal cuts are made, do the same process for the vertical cuts. Perfect little squares!
