I went to the farmer’s market yesterday and everywhere I looked I saw blueberries…with blueberry samples. Oh dear. I may have treated myself to more than my share of blueberry samples, but I made up for it with the bounty of berries I brought home.
We are obsessed with this super food packed with antioxidants and vitamins and full of flavor, especially the in-season and fresh from the farm variety. With the farmer’s markets bursting with blueberries I thought I would find the best recipes for bringing out their flavor and leave my kids begging for more.
