Picking the Season's Blueberries

Plump, juicy and sweet with vibrant colors from red to the deepest purple-black, blueberries are one of nature’s finest treasures. And, here at my Bedford, New York farm, the blueberry bushes are covered with delicious fruits.

We've been picking lots of blueberries this season. I love to use them for jams, jellies, and pies, but they’re also wonderful in pancakes, cobblers and of course, in handfuls on their own. Low in fat, yet packed with vitamin-C and antioxidants, it’s not surprising they’re one of America’s favorite fruits to eat.

Last Friday, before leaving for a busy day at QVC, we picked several boxes of delicious blueberries. Here are some photos of my patch and our bountiful harvest. Enjoy.
