Late summer has arrived, and with it, one of our favorite summer fruits—wild blueberries! Small and juicy, blueberries are delicious plain or sprinkled onto cereal or oatmeal, but we also love them made into warm muffins, tempting pie, or as a sweet addition to a stack of buttermilk pancakes. Whether you pick your own or stock up at the market, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to use up this year’s fresh blueberries. That is, if you don’t eat them all first!

    Don’t forget that blueberries are great for freezing too! Stock up while they are still in season and put in the freezer to be enjoyed throughout the year.
