Picking up blueberries is a national sport in my home region of Lac-Saint-Jean in Quebec, Canada. There would be something missing in the summer if I didn’t pick up blueberries, eating up a ton of them in the process.
Blueberries are picked up in the woods or in fields made especially to grow the small and tasty wild blueberries for resale . Here is how it looks :
Look at those beauties, wonderful…
After a hard day of picking up blueberries this is the best recipe to make. This treat is at its best when made with very fresh blueberries at room temperature and without any water on them. Don’t try this with frozen blueberries or you will only get a mushy paste!
Directions to make chocolate-covered blueberries
The usual batch is made with 2 liters (8 cups) of fresh blueberries and 350 grams of sweet or semi-sweet chocolate. Start by melting the chocolate very slowly in a double boiler. When the chocolate has melted, remove from fire and mix in the blueberries fast.
Put small clumps of blueberry on trays covered by waxed papers, still working fast so the chocolate won’t solidify in the pan. Put the trays in the refrigerator for a few hours until the chocolate is fully solid. Store the completed chocolates in the refrigerator, where they will last for a few days. It should disappear soon anyway, a fresh batch is usually eaten within two days here…
