WOW!!! It's spring. What a great time to go out and buy blueberries. This recipe won a Blue Ribbon at the New Mexico State Fair. I love blueberries!!! Remember Lots of Love comes from all your Heart n Soul.

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add butter ingredients to dry ingredients and mix lightly, just until moistened. Fold in
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries.

This is a great time to buy blueberries. Buy them and wash gently, pat dry. Place the blueberries on a cookie sheet put in the freezer until frozen. Remove from freezer and put in a zip-lock bags. Freeze until needed. This perverts them from clopping together.
Blackberries are great in this recipe.
You can also use lemon juice instead of orange juice.
