Blueberries
Small, smooth, round berries that are dark blue in colour. Considered by many to be a 'superfood', blueberries are high in cancer-fighting antioxidants and are also antibacterial. (Trivia from the Great Food Almanac - If all the blueberries grown in North America in one year were spread out in a single layer, they would cover a four-lane highway that stretched from New York to Chicago).
Category: Fruit
In Season: Summer
To Buy:
Usually found in plastic punnets.
To Store:
Remove the berries from the punnet and put in a small bowl lined with absorbent paper. Store for up to 5 days. Remove them from the fridge about 1/2 hour before serving to allow the full flavour of the berry to come out.
Tips & Tricks:
Blueberries freeze well and can be enjoyed throughout the year. Frozen berries can be bought from most good supermarkets.
Cooking Tips:
Serve fresh with other berries. Add to cakes and muffins. Serve over pancakes with breakfast.
