My Oatmeal is Blue

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Oatmeal with fresh or frozen fruit is a staple breakfast item here, however, when using frozen blueberries, the oatmeal turns blue. Is there some way to prevent that from happening?

Use brownberries.
I might be suffering from CDO.
It is just like OCD, except the letters are in alphabetical order.
Just as they should be...

Use Fresh only and don't stir.

Like Oldschool1982 said... Frozen blueberries always leach.

Use fresh.

Thanks Luc and Old .... kinda though that might be the case.

I guess there will be times I'll have to eat blue oatmeal, as wild and organic blueberries aren't always available, and even during blueberry season it's sometimes hard to get the small, flavorful wild berries. However, I'll try not to stir them into the oatmeal - that should help somewhat.

Hmmm - I bet some dried blueberries might be the answer when fresh won't suffice. Thanks for the idea ...

I tried closing my eyes but I kept missing my mouth <LOL>

Getting to Ferry Plaza from my place is a bit of a PITA. Generally, I only go when a friend comes in from out of town. She'll drive over, doesn't mind the traffic and expenses associated with bringing a car into San Francisco.

if you don;t like the blue, then put the blueberries on top after the oatmeal is cooked. I think it would taste better anyway. When i make blueberry pancakes i make sugar syrup, shut the gas and then add the blueberries and stir. I use it as syrup on the pancakes. You could do something similar, using only as much sugar as you like on your oatmeal, and lots of blueberries. you put them in frozen to the hot syrup wiothout further cooking and they defrost like that. Then the blue will be on top, and if you like, just marble it into the oatmeal, not mixing it, and it will be oatmeal with blue stripes, not blue-grey oatmeal which is not appetizing.
