Fit for the Fireworks Fuel – BLUEBERRIES

In season – Now through August, but the good stuff happens usually in July

What to look for when buying – Berries should be bright blue, even purplish in color and shouldn’t have soft spots or look shriveled. Don’t judge based on size, the sweetest ones aren’t always the biggest ones.

Flavor – Like how sunshine would taste, if we could taste it! 😉 Sweet with a bit of bitterness.

Storage – Store blueberries in the refrigerator in a breathable container. They should last this way up to two weeks. Wash them only before enjoying them.

Nutrition – A little blue wonder indeed! These little berries are LOADED with a powerhouse of nutrients, especially antioxidants!
