If Strawberry and Blueberry were sisters, Strawberry would be the high school prom queen and Blueberry would be leader of her middle school poms team. You know Blueberry’s gonna do great things, even if she’s not quite as popular yet. Lucky for her, it’s blueberry season!
Buying in-season fruits and vegetables can save money. For one thing, they’re usually the cheapest they’ll be all year. For another thing, they’ll be fresh and delicious compared to out-of-season produce, because fresh fruits and veggies don’t have to travel as far. They usually come from local farms. If you love seasonal recipes, check out out guide to Foods That Taste Better in June.
If you’re at the store choosing blueberries, remember to check for mold or sticky, squished berries. Berries with stems attached weren’t fully grown before picking. Fresh blueberries have a slightly ‘frosted’ look.
Blueberries are wonderful for baking. In fact, they might be the best berry! Blueberry desserts can fit your budget. While these berries are sweet, they can also have a semi-sour flavor that reminds me of summer berries that grow around my neighborhood. Blueberries pair well with sweet desserts because the sweetness isn’t overwhelming, which is why blueberry muffin recipes are great. Try these Wild Blueberry Applespice Muffins for a twist on that breakfast favorite.
