Old-Fashioned Blueberry Muffins Recipe

AT the end of the summer years ago, our family often gathered to pick wild blueberries. Mother canned them and saved them for special pie treats during the holidays. If there were any leftover she made them into these delicious blueberry muffins. —June Morris, Water Mill Long Island, New York
