It’s blueberry season and the pickings are good right now. The blueberry is one of the few fruits that are native to North America.

Blueberries, also known as “star berries”, are ready to pick and eat.

Blueberries can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways: plain, in cereals, in pancakes and waffles, on ice cream, in pies, in muffins and scones, in a salad, in a smoothie, etc. I recently picked my own blueberries at Blueberry Fields of Stillwater. They’re easy to pick and it’s a good way to save money at the grocery store. And these are grown without pesticides, a definite plus!
