    Hi, nice to have you here!

    I've looked at a few of the no knead bread recipes. One I make frequently fits that category...it makes up a sour dough type bread. Do you have some favorites in mind you'd like to share?

    There's a few but specifically the recipes which call for a very wet dough and a preheated Dutch oven.
    I've found they require very little skill and produce light crisp loaves.

    Hi @cheepteach , that isn't the whole recipe is it? Sounds too simple to be true (and it sounds good!).

    We usually get several pounds of blueberries; They are very easy to freeze. I first go through and pick out any bruised/bad ones, them through them in a strainer and rinse them well. After I drain them, I spread them out on cookie sheets on a later of paper towels and stick them in the freezer. (This helps them not freeze in big chunks.) After they're frozen I transfer them into quart freezer zippy bags. Easy and only takes 20 minutes, tops.

    Cheeptech,

    Alcohol doesn't cook off at the rate most people think it does.

    That's how we handled the blueberries we got from the u-pick this year. They've maintained their round shape and flavor nicely. So nicely in fact, I've already told DH next year we're getting twice as many! [​IMG]

    Blueberry freeze update. I had 12# of organic, no pesticide ones in the gift. Found a site that suggested just placing in freezer bags. Since they were clean and dry decided to try it. Didn't have the luxury of space or time to do the cookie sheet freeze. Placed 1# in each bag and they are frozen and can tell they did not freeze together, they are still loose individual berries [​IMG] They said I could just pull out how many I need for eating or recipes and reseal the bags.

    But do know this lady well and trust they are organic. So safe without washing.

    Now gotta find some great recipes…will look back on the threads, seems @NorthFLChick had one for blueberry pie. Wondering about using my peach cobbler recipe and sub the BB…would be so, so easy?

    Sunflour,

    I have a glut of blueberry recipes, if your interested, although what sort of dishes you prefer would help cull the list.
