August Is Blueberry Month

There’s no better season than summer, when access to fresh, locally grown produce is at its peak. And August is fantastic, because locally harvested blueberries abound.

Blueberries are full of antioxidants, including lutein, a compound identified as effective in preventing and sometimes reversing macular degeneration, the most common cause of blindness in older people. And what a tasty way to protect your health! Pour them into a saucepan with a small sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch, heat until you’ve got a thick, syrupy, concoction, pour into a pie crust and bake, for a wonderful blueberry pie. Or simply place a handful of fresh blueberries over your morning cereal, or in a fresh green salad for a small extra punch.

Gourmet stonewallkitchen.com/ blueberry jams and syrups retain the healthy qualities of fresh raw blueberries, so don’t be worried to add these delights to your diet. A tablespoon of blueberry jam spread over a piece of whole wheat toast is a healthy start to your day; a generous dollop of warmed blueberry syrup poured over a stack of pancakes or a bowl of vanilla ice cream is a fantastic treat for any time of day.

Make sure you take full advantage of the summer growing season by enjoying the local produce available at your grocery stores and farmer’s markets. And be sure to include fresh, locally grown blueberries in your buys; it’s a tasty way to delight in the best summer has to offer.
