5 Ways to Use Blueberries (and Why You Should)

5 Ways to Use Blueberries (and Why You Should)

July is National Blueberry Month, which makes it a great time for reminding ourselves of the many great ways they can be consumed. It’s also a great time to be reminded of the myriad reasons for making them a regular part of one’s diet. The more you know about these powerful little berries, the more you will want them to become a bigger part of your family’s life.

“Blueberries have been loved in this country since the beginning, really,” explains Chef Scott Jenkins, the executive chef at Arlington-based Extra Virgin restaurant. “They are delicious, versatile and healthy, so what’s not to love about a blueberry?”

According to the North American Blueberry Council, blueberries are a native American species. We produce roughly 90 percent of the world’s blueberries, making this country the leader in blueberry production. While blueberries are grown in over 30 states, with the harvest running from mid-April through October, the harvest peak is July.
