Blueberries

I went to pick blueberries today--and did I ever pick them. This must be a good year. The berries were big and sweet and just about jumping off the bushes into my box. Now what to do with five pounds of blueberries I brought home. Mike suggested blueberry pie but I made a lemon pie on Wednesday so I'll wait a few days before another pie. Since his sister is coming for the weekend, I think I'll make blueberry scones to have for breakfast. Most will go in the freezer. Too bad the grand kids are not here because they would eat a bucket load just plain, the best way.
Here's a recipe for Blueberry Fool:

1 cup blueberries simmered in 1/3 cup water until tender (10 min)
Add 2 T sugar and 1T creme de cassis. Cool in pan then
chill for 1 to 2 hours.
Fold in 1 cup heavy cream whipped with 1 T sugar and 1/4 t lemon zest
added.
Serve in chilled glasses.

I cheat and use vanilla yogurt instead of the whipped cream when I'm feeling health conscious.
