Picking Lots of Blueberries

It's berry season and here at my Bedford, New York farm, the blueberries are ripe for the picking!

Plump, juicy and sweet, with vibrant colors from red to the deepest purple-black, blueberries are one of nature’s finest treasures. 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.

Here are some photos of my blueberry patch, and this year’s first big harvest. And don't forget our July/August 2019 issue of "Living" - it's got a great recipe for making No-Churn Raspberry Frozen Yogurt you can top with fresh blueberries just before serving. Happy National Blueberry Month!
