Blueberry

Related to the cranberry, these delicious little berries grow mostly in North America. Their blue skin surrounds a clear flesh inside that is chock full of vitamin C, manganese, vitamin K, and fiber.

Quality Check

Make sure that your berries look nice and plump. The size of the berry doesn’t matter too much, but check the color: ripe berries are deep blue/purple to black.

Preparation

After washing, blueberries can be eaten plain, added to yogurt, ice cream, or oatmeal. For a frozen treat, pop them in the freezer to enjoy by themselves, in a smoothie, or even on a burger! Make sure to eat fresh berries within a week of opening them.
