These superfood berries are one of the only fruits native to North America and have been traced back as far back as 13,000 years.
The farmers at your local farmers' market handpick their blueberries when they're just ready and not before, bringing you only the sweetest blueberries available. They are rich in antioxidants that are said to fight cancer and heart disease. The best thing about blueberries is their flavor and versatility.
Did you know that the grayish "bloom" on a blueberry is there to protect the berry from bacteria and insects, and to seal in moisture?
Select berries that are plump, dent free and blue. Smaller blueberries will have a more intense flavor.
Store unwashed berries in your refrigerator for five to seven days. Rinse before serving.
