Jane returns from Maine (with blueberries)

My friend Jane has a daughter, Jenny, who lives in Maine with husband Hugh. They're artists and make their money (such as it is) by growing certified organic, wild blueberries. It is becoming a family tradition that every August everyone in the family and many friends gather in Cherryfield, ME to spend the month harvesting the blueberries and bonding.

They are the most beautiful and delicious blueberries I've ever eaten. Wild blueberries are smaller than their cultivated cousins and have a wonderful sweet flavor.

We celebrated Jane's return to the Big City with a little dinner party and she brought us this amazing box of blueberries.

The first thing I made with them was a bourbon peach and blueberry upside down cake.
We managed to choke it down. ;-)
