Tips & Suggestions

1 You can use fresh blueberries, but bake muffins at 350° for approx 18 to 20 minutes.

2 When you have a recipe calling for just lemon juice, zest an organic lemon & store it in a small glass container (like a spice jar) in the freezer. That way when you have a recipe calling for just zest, like this one, you'll have it on hand & nothing goes to waste.

  1. I love lemon zest in blueberry muffins! And oh my, your tip for storing the zest in the freezer is brilliant!!

    1. Glad you love my tip Heather… I also do the same with lemon juice. I use glass spice jars for storing in the freezer, that way I can date & label with a sharpie marker right on the glass & it washes off. I also do the same with limes & oranges 🙂

  2. Oh I love your tip about storing lemon zest in the freezer. You have no idea how many times i zest a lemon and don’t know what to do with the rest of it for few days or juice the lemon and throw away the skin. I’ll definitely follow this tip!!! These blueberry muffins look really amazing, yummy:)
