Every spring here in Florida, I always look forward to blueberry picking. We have a couple of really nice u-pick farms close by and in 15 minutes we fill up a couple of buckets with plump, juicy and sweet blueberries just waiting to turn into a cobbler.

The rows are clean and we never have to bend over to pick them. The bushes are tall enough for all heights of people who want to pick. I love watching the little ones with their little buckets having a great time picking blueberries and sampling a few. There are several varieties growing to make sure there are plenty of blueberries.

The leftover berries will be washed and completely dried, laid on sheet pans, put in the freezer to flash freeze them and then transferred to freezer bags to last until next season.

Oh, and in case you are wondering this cobbler goes great with vanilla ice cream!
