B & B

You know, I really need to stop buying bananas. They’re so much pressure. Now, in addition to the rapidly darkening ‘nanas, I have a refrigerator full of blueberries. I purchased them with the idea of making jam last week, but my friend and I were too pooped after 20 jars of strawberry jam.

So, of course, I combined the two this morning. I took the Bananaville recipe I posted earlier, omitted the pineapple and coconut, and added 1 cup of fresh blueberries, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of mace. Mace is made from the lacy outer covering of nutmeg, and I think it has a little fresher flavor than nutmeg, almost a citrus-like taste. I kept the rum, of course.

The resulting bread is surprisingly dark colored. It looks like I used whole-wheat flour, but I didn’t. I guess it’s the spices and maybe a little oozing from the blueberries. All good.

    This is a great idea. I’ll be it tastes great. I buy blueberries from my hometown of Burgaw, NC, here in Miami, and even though there’s the shipping (eating locally thang), it still always makes me feel proud!
