Blueberry Muffins


My mother in law gave me the following recipe to share in my column and with it came an interesting story. On a trip to Greece, they met a Finnish lady from Sudbury who had paid for her entire trip using the money she had earned from picking and selling blueberries. The tour group later had a reunion and the lady brought these delicious muffins and the recipe. This is a perfect time to try this recipe while blueberries are in season. If you don’t like to pick blueberries or don’t have the time or place, you can find many sellers along the roadside right now who would appreciate your business.
