You mean I'm NOT the only one?  I feel much better.

Not a blueberry fan either Felaine.

PS: Whatever happened to fresh Boysenberries in grocery stores?  We can't even find them at the outdoor weekly farmers market.  They have MUCH deeper flavor than blackberries, or similar ones.  That was the only thing I ever liked about Knott's Berry Farm...Boysenberry ice cream, pie, whatever.  Forget the stupid rides and "attractions."

I must be the only person in the world who doesn't think much of blueberries; my first taste of them was in 7th grade cooking class...canned...we made blueberry muffins.  I thought they tasted "musty," and have avoided them ever since.

I know that cranberries are supposed to be from the same "family," but OMNerves!  I buy fresh ones every fall when they are on sale, and freeze them in their bags.  To make cranberry/orange (or tangerine) muffins, just stir the frozen berries into the batter with a little juice, and a lot of zest (one of my favorite kitchen toys is my MicroPlane), and bake as usual. 

Or maybe I'm just a tart.  Most of the flavors I like best are more tart or spicy than sweet.

Blueberries aren't in season here till early July. Blueberry syrup on blueberry pancakes. Carry me back to ole' Virginny!!!!

Yes, Randall, I want to check my blueberry bushes to see if they survived this crazy winter. I ate all of last year's crop right off the bushes and didn't save any to freeze. Working in the garden I take little breaks and get hands full of the blue delights to refresh myself. 

Yumm! Blueberry pancakes.

Wine festivals are usually in August through September, followed by the beer festivals, And, they're a blast. Not just because of the drinking, but the food served there is spectacular.

I assume, Joan, you're talking about picking blueberries come this summer, not now! I mixed some in my pancake batter this morning. What a delight!

Pat, German beer festivals, I know, are usually in the Fall. But I don't know when wine festivals are. Sounds like a plan--I love wine. Wanna go with me? 2 for 1 packages are cheaper.

Blueberries! By the handful, right off the bush. Pure delight. I'll check them tomorrow to see if they survived the crazy freeze, thaws, no snow, repeat and repeat.
