UrthChild has moved to the beautiful Berkshires! There is so much to love about this little corner of the world, but one of the best things is having access to so many wonderful local organic farms that provide us with delicious bounty all summer long. Blueberries are currently in season. Our children picked 4 pints for us on Friday and we're still deciding on all the wonderful ways to use them. Smoothies are a given, and probably some muffins, but trying to decide between a pie or a tart!
The amazing thing about blueberries is that in addition to being so yummy they are also a super food, and are one of nature's most potent antioxidants. By neutralizing free radicals in the body they help protect against cancers, aging, degenerative diseases, and infections.
Do you have a baby at home? Blueberries are great finger food for your baby over 6 months- to be on the safe side make sure and cut them in half so that they don't pose a choking hazard. Although in my experience, babies like to squish them first anyway! A healthy- and messy - snack!
What are you favorite ways to use blueberries? Any amazing recipes to share?
Congrats to Jill from Meet the Dubiens, a wonderful food and craft blog, for possibly the cutest use of blueberries we've ever seen:
