Veggie Unearthed: Organic Blueberries
Your organic blueberries came to us from Blue Bayou in Yalaha, FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.
Blueberries don’t really need an introduction as they generally don’t make it from the box to the refrigerator in most houses without being gobbled up. They are a perfect little snack. However, blueberries are a great addition to salads, muffins, crepes, eggs, and meat. Yes, I said meat! Get creative in the kitchen this week. High in Vitamin C & K, just one cup will give about 25% of your daily recommended value.
Store your unwashed berries in the refrigerator. Water will quickly deteriorate the quality of the berries so be sure to only wash what you’re about to eat. Freezing blueberries is also an easy option and a perfect treat as-is or in smoothies. Place the dry berries in one layer onto a flat sheet pan and into your freezer. Periodically shake the berries on the tray to prevent freezing to the sheet. Once frozen, transfer the berries into a freezer bag.
