Pick Blueberries Day

 

“I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill”

— Antoine Domino, Jr. (“Fats Domino”) (1928 – 2017)

American pianist and songwriter

 

Rich in antioxidants, blueberries are not only scrumptious but a guilt-free snack, too! They cook up splendidly in so many ways…

Hot and buttery pancakes, drizzled with warmed, 100% pure maple syrup

Atop cereal, granola, or yogurt

Scattered throughout a light, warm coffeecake

Sweet and juicy inside pies, tarts, and turnovers

Fresh and topped with whipped cream

Tossed with other berries and chunks of fruit

Nestled inside light, fluffy crepes with a perfect custard cream

 

But seriously… This is the time of year when they burst in perfect blueness, just begging to be plucked off the low or high bushes and popped into your mouth! Then give me that bright, blue-lipped smile!!!
