muffins :: the other berry
and when we have more than we can handle (sometimes I buy extra, because, heck, this is the only time of year I can get 'em) i put them into muffins. similar to the blueberry muffin, being a summer fruit and all, but sometimes you want something different.
i recommend this recipe. and stay tuned for some helpful muffin-making tips!

1/2 cup sugar
