Blueberries belong to the genus Vaccinium and are related to the bilberry, cranberry, huckleberry, hurtleberry, saskatoon, and whortleberry. This round, smooth-skinned, dark indigo blue berry with a dusty white bloom, is native to North America and has been cultivated commercially since the early 1900's.

The cultivated blueberries are up to four times as large as the wild blueberries and are available from late May to late September. Most of the blueberries sold in grocery stores are cultivated. When choosing blueberries look for firm, plump, fragrant, dark blue berries with a dusty white bloom. The white bloom is the blueberry's natural protection against the sun and is a sign of freshness. Always check the underside of the container for any wet spots or staining. Discard any soft, moldy, or crushed berries. 

Blueberries are what we now call a 'super' food. Leanne Kitchen in "The Produce Bible" tells us these sweet and juicy berries contain "cholesterol lowering compounds, antioxidants, Vitamin C, potassium, foliate, and dietary fiber". And the added bonus is that some think they may even have anti-aging effects. continued below

The delicious cream is made with mascarpone cream and whipped cream, mixed with a little vanilla and sugar. more

Honey Granola

Everyone loves the elegance of a fruit tart with its topping of beautiful fresh fruit. Whether you use a single fruit (like blueberries) or a medley of berries, sliced kiwi, plums, bananas, pineapple, and/or melon no one can resist its beauty. more These fruit tarts, with their layers of fresh fruit, rich cream, and fluted pie crusts can only be described as elegant. more Honey Granola is a delicious mixture of oats, almonds, wheat germ, and seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame) that are coated in a sweet mixture of honey, brown sugar, and cinnamon. more

Berry Tart

Pavlova

Pancakes

When blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and/or cherries are available, I like to make this tart as the crumbly texture and buttery flavor of the pastry, Pate Brissee, goes so well with the tartness of the berries. more This meringue cake, with its unusual soft sweet marshmallow center and crisp crust is produced by folding a little vinegar and cornstarch into the stiffly beaten egg whites and sugar. more These batters produce a pancake that is light and fluffy with a soft crust and spongy texture. more

But the best part about blueberries is that although they are great for eating out of hand, they are also delicious in our baking. Heat turns blueberries wonderfully soft and sweet. So, with that in mind, let's get baking.

Some recipes featured below leave the blueberries uncooked. These include the Berry Parfaits, the Berry Pancake, the Blueberry Trifle, the Jellied Fruit Terrine, the Fruit Salad, the Fruit Tart, Graham Cracker Tarts, and the every popular Pavlova. Other recipes incorporate the blueberries right into the batter, as in the muffins, scones, blueberry cake and blueberry bread. Then there are a few breakfast and/or brunch recipes that include blueberries. Blueberry pancakes are always welcomed, and here we can just drop a few blueberries onto the batter as it is frying. They are also delicious when used to fill a Berry Pancake, with a dollop of whipped cream or yogurt on top. Or maybe you want to serve your waffles with fresh blueberries along with maple syrup. And there is more. What not try the Blueberry Sauce with its tangy yet sweet flavor that makes an excellent accompaniment to pancakes, waffles, ice cream, stirred into your morning yogurt, or used as a filling in cakes. And lastly, let us not forget the Blueberry Pie and individual Berry Tarts. Both pair sweetened blueberries with a buttery crisp pastry that is sure to please your guests.

So, with these recipes as a guide, enjoy this lovely berry during the Summer months.
