The Berries:

Fresh plump blueberries make a great muffin. However, this recipe works really well with frozen berries too. The muffins pictured here are made with fresh frozen blueberries from garden bushes.

A bag of purchased frozen berries will work great too. Just make sure the berries are whole and defrost without leaking juice into the batter. Or you will have purple muffins. Not a big deal. Just sayin.

Canned blueberries will work in a pinch but are usually small and full of liquid. If you do try them be sure to rinse and drain them before adding them to the batter. Watch for extra liquid. It will affect the batter and muffin texture. And make purple muffins.

The Buttermilk:

Use real and fresh buttermilk if you have it for the best authentic buttermilk flavor. However, you can use fresh milk with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in it for a close second. Just let is sit five minutes once mixed until it gets a bit lumpy and curdled looking.

These muffins will hold well for several days if stored at room temperature covered or in an air tight container in the fridge.
