Sourdough Blueberry Muffins

There is nothing better than getting up early on a Saturday morning, sitting down at the table and enjoying a hot cup of coffee and a warm, homemade sourdough blueberry muffins. Especially if it’s made with fresh blueberries. The flavor of fresh blueberries can’t be beat. Adding any ‘in season’ fresh berry to a muffin batter is a favorite here on Turnips 2 Tangerines. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, mulberries, it’s all good!
