Grammy's Blueberry Lemon Muffins

Having grown up in wild blueberry country in northern Ontario, it is not surprising that wild blueberries have a special place in my heart. I have many fond memories of going camping with my family, and while we were out at the lake we would forage for wild blueberries. I have many recipes that work best with wild blueberries, but I am particularly fond of this blueberry lemon muffin recipe because it holds up well with the larger domestic blueberries as well. Enjoy these muffins all year long by using fresh or frozen blueberries.
