We almost missed blueberry season this year. Last Sat. was our last chance to pick at our favorite organic blueberry farm, so we made a family outing of it. There weren't too many to pick from, but we managed to go home with enough to freeze, make a delicious sauce, spread over oatmeal and just eat plain. By the time we left I think the kids bellies were about as full as their buckets with berries.
Pilot is our designated sauce maker. At 4 years old he can make the entire sauce by himself. I just stand near him and turn the stove on and off. He really likes the independence he gets from cooking and the trust that we have in him. Since we don't normally use recipes, I encourage the kids to taste and decide how much of an ingredient they think would by tasty. Over time he has developed a sense of proportions and flavor that we all enjoy.
