“Entered for safe-keeping, just got a heavy-duty 12-cup food processor. From George Geary's "125 Best Food Processor Recipes". He warns that 1) if the berries are thawed before adding to the batter, they can turn it an unpleasant blue color and 2) if you use butter instead of shortening, your muffins will not be as flaky. The cooled muffins can be frozen in a resealable plastic bag for up to 30 days.”
