Jumbo Blueberry Muffins with Orange Pecan Crumble {and Orange Honey Butter}

Oh, look, cupcakes less popular cousin – muffins!  Well, these Jumbo Blueberry Muffins with Orange Pecan Crumble are not your average muffin, that’s for sure!  Just that they have local Newfoundland berries kinda makes them inherently wicked, that’s for sure!  Now, I may be a little biased, but blueberries in Newfoundland are by far the best blueberries found anywhere!  Seriously, though, they are so sweet & concentrated in flavour, they kick any other blueberries’ butt!  Around late Summer/early Fall, people typically go berry picking in Newfoundland.  They are grown wild and you can fill buckets and buckets with these little gems.  I recently got a bunch and couldn’t wait to bake with them (if they lasted that long before I had a chance to do so!).  They are so much tinier than any mass produced/grown ones you may find in the grocery store, but they make up for in their amazing flavour…like little candies!
