    Keep them frozen, but dust them in flour before adding to the muffin batter. This will help absorb any excess liquid, and keep them mixed vs. sinking to the bottom of the muffin. Another great trick for blueberry muffins is to mash some of them in the batter, and keep the rest whole.

    I've used frozen blueberries and they taste just fine, but honestly, they don't take very long to thaw out either. Just place them in a colander, run some cold water over them to thaw, let them drain fully and place on a paper towel to remove all the excess water. Hope this helps you out with your dilemma today.

    when making muffins never add thawed blueberries. Always add frozen berries. They hold up to the mixing better and add a nice bite of whole berry when you bite into one.

    Blueberry muffins w/out blueberries are just muffins. Yes, you can remove the blueberries and/or you can substitute them with something else like pineapple or carrots. Unless it calls for blueberries w/ juice then you would substitue the amount of juice with milk or water or some other juice.

    I find it is better to use them from frozen, especially in muffin recipes because they don't end up as purple bobs in the mixture.

    Use them frozen. The results will be best that way. They just make a mess when thawed.

    You can, but you should roll them in flour first. (husband is a bakery manager). Frozen blueberries taste better :)
