The Blueberries Must Go

Why would anyone purchase blueberries out of season? Because they’re just that good when they are in season. Luckily for you, now is prime blueberry-time.

However, last July I was lured into a blueberry purchase by a local fruit stand. $1 for a pint? Hard to say no. But the season was passing, and I had to use them all immediately. So I used google as it was meant to be used and found a rash of berry recipes. I read among them, looking for a hands-down winner. Instead, I found a competition.

I read through and found a winner of my own. The judges tested the recipes and found a different winner.

Try them out and pick a blue-ribbon recipient of your choice.
