Blueberries Shorts

  • Puree blueberries with fruit juices and/or other fruits and freeze to make popsicles.  Yogurt can be added to the mixture before freezing for extra flavor and nutrition.
  • To add blueberries to your favorite cake or quick bread recipe, use 1 cup of blueberries for every 2 cups of flour in your recipe.  Use 2 tbs of the flour to coat your dry berries; this will help keep them from sinking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Overmixing blueberries will crush them.  Fold them gently into other ingredients.  Crushed berries may make food look gray; or blue.
  • Orange, lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors mix well with blueberry flavors.
  • Blueberries are one of summer’s treats.  ˝ cup amounts to only 45 calories, AND blueberries are high fiber, high in vitamin C and second only to bananas in potassium!
  • Add frozen blueberries to your morning cereal.  They will thaw enough to be eaten in the time it takes to add milk.
  • Frozen blueberries can be used as fresh berries in most of your recipes.  DO NOT defrost them first.  Batter will freeze to frozen berries and help prevent the berries from “bleeding” and turning your recipes blue/gray.
  • When you have more blueberries than you can eat, freeze them to eat later.  For fresher tasting blueberry jam, freeze berries and make the jam in small quantities as you need it.
