Mmmmmmmmm, sweet tart and minty. Win, win, win recipe. When I opened the freezer container that had the blueberries in it, just imagine my surprise upon seeing frozen burger patties! Next best option was picking the blueberries out of the mixed, of course, 2 blackberries and a raspberry stuck to my fingers. It's all good though and this a sooooo good I think I'll be making it all summer. :D
