I bought a big bucket of blueberries from a local grower this year and they are so sweet and delicious. The blueberries really perk up my unsweetened cereal in the morning! These little superstars are packed with anthocyanins which research is showing help fight against cancer and heart disease. Here is a short read from US News on blueberries.
Blueberries are on the super foods list because of their health benefits. I pulled a blog post on SUPERFOODS. This will give you a heads up for your fall/winter garden. Blueberries are perfect for planting in the fall–October/November–when the weather here in Georgia is cooling down.
Before the bucket turns to blueberry wine, I’d better get them in the freezer to pull out whenever I want fresh blueberries! Here is a link from PickYourOwn.org with pictures and EASY directions on how to properly freeze for best results.
Having a glass of Rose wine with the girls tonight, so I thought I would experiment with this recipe-–Grilled Brie with Blackberry Smash–except I am subbing blueberries for the blackberries!!. Love this blog, too, check out Half Baked Harvest!
