Just got back from a whirlwind vacation that I have not yet recovered from. Truly, I need a break from vacationing! Posting will continue on a more regular basis shortly as I am craving nourishment from my own kitchen! Visited some great restaurants but there is nothing quite the same as home cooked meals. I will be catching up with my favorite blogs shortly.
I tend to avoid refined sugars, preferring instead naturally sweet foods, like fruit. For some reason, I don't eat as much fresh fruit as I should, though I snack on dried fruit daily. I suppose I prefer the condensed flavor of dried fruits. Fresh berries are another matter altogether. It is hard to resist the juicy and plump delights just as is, or with a bit of yogurt perhaps.
This year, the berries harvest is especially flavorful and abundant, and most of the week we have some sort of fresh berry on hand. The berry that is most irresistible to me is the mighty blueberry. Looking into the fridge, I caught sight of a big bowl of them peering up at me. Not that I needed to transform them at all, but the idea of blueberry biscuits never left my mind and I resolved to make blueberry biscuits that were as impressive and successful as the best blueberry muffins I have made to date.
The result ended up being dinner.
I used very little sugar in this biscuit recipe, as I prefer savory treats, but bursting with blueberries as they were, they were plenty sweet with a slight tartness imparted by the dried cherries.
