A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Blueberries and Apricots – 14 July 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

I just finished washing six pints of blueberries and put them in the freezer. The other day, we bought them at the supermarket where they had a special on blueberries. We’ve found that blueberries that have been frozen hold up better when used in baking.

The apricots, the first of the season, are from the local farm market. The flavor of these locally grown apricots is far better than that of the ones that are shipped in from a distance and sold year-round in the supermarket.

We like eating apricots and blueberries raw, but we also look forward to making our blueberry and apricot favorites: apricot blueberry oven cakes (like pancakes, except that they’re baked), apricot blueberry pizza, apricot cream with blueberries, blueberry muffins, and others.
