Blueberry Buckle - Donated by Vicki F.

1/4 Cup butter (softened)   
3/4 Cup sugar
2    Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups Flour & 1/4 Cup to roll berries in.
2 tsp.  Salt
1/2  Cup Buttermilk
2 1/2 Cups Blueberries

Freezing your fresh picked fruit

Raspberries - Wash your fruit, place on cookie sheets, freeze,
then place in a freezer container.

Blueberries - Do not wash your fruit, place in a freezer bag,
vacuum bag or other freezer container.  The fruit will not stick
together (as long as it is not wet).  If you wash your
fruit prior to freezing make sure that you dry throughly
prior to freezing otherwise your fruit will become mushy.

When you want to use the frozen fruit, place desired amount in
colander and run under cool running water. By doing it this way
its more like a fresh berry.  Never take the whole bag and just let thaw,
they just get mushy.
