We have always loved the Robert McClosky book, Blueberries for Sal, when my oldest kids were younger we would eat our favorite blueberry recipes while reading the book. Now, years later, with my youngest, we incorporate books into our Poetry Tea Time so delicious foods we can make with blueberries are always welcomed. I especially love making blueberry cheesecake jars to take outdoors for a book picnic.
I always wanted to can blueberries like Sal’s mom did in Blueberries for Sal, so when I finally got some canning products, that’s exactly what I did. If you’re looking for yummy recipes you can incorporate into reading Blueberries for Sal, this list will get you started. It features some treats the kids can make with you and kid-friendly blueberry recipes that you can incorporate when teaching cooking in your homeschool.

So, I learned something new today. I mean, as homeschoolers this isn’t news for sure. We all know that each day brings with it new opportunities and knowledge.

Anyway, this Envy Apple and Blueberry Baked Oatmeal is a warm and hearty breakfast that will get your homeschool day started off on the right foot.
You really can’t go wrong with Homemade Blueberry Muffins; this quick recipe is perfect when you’re baking with kids because it mixes and bakes up pretty fast. Try it during Poetry Tea Time or while you’re reading If You Give a Moose a Muffin!

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
We have a pretty relaxed homeschool with no set schedules. We do, however, have mornings where we have to be at homeschool co-op fairly early. It’s hard coming up with a variety of breakfast ideas for my super-picky eater. I like to try different things to serve him in the morning. These Oatmeal Blueberry Bars are the perfect on-the-go breakfast, as long as you’re cool with a little blueberry here and there in your car.
This next recipe has a funny name that is sure to garner a giggle. I actually think this recipe name would make for a really cute children’s picture book title. Laura from Little House, Big Alaska shares this Blueberry Grunt recipe – she says it’s almost like a cobbler, but kind of like a buckle. Whatever you want to call it, it’s definitely worth trying!
For years I wanted to buy the Wilton 6-cavity donut baking pan. I used to look at it longingly online and think, but never thought I’d actually make any, so I never did put it in my cart. During the height of Quarantine 2020, they somehow found their way to my front door via Amazon. I’ve been baking donuts regularly since. These Whole Wheat Baked Blueberry Donuts are perfect, especially if you can’t decide between a muffin or a donut. Why not both?
Finally, if you’re looking for a fun Summer Poetry Tea Time beverage, this Strawberry Lemonade with Blueberries makes for a refreshing treat.
