Blueberry season is at its peak in Nova Scotia, and that means it’s the perfect time to enjoy this super healthy and super tasty fruit. Whether frozen or fresh, these berries are great for everything from salads to pies, and the anti-oxidant properties they provide are surpassed by few other fruits.
The most fun way to work these in to your baking or cooking is to hand pick them yourself, and when you’re tired from that, the even better news is that they don’t need to be chopped. One other fun fact for after you’ve mastered all of these recipes, or for while you’re mastering them, is that they make a great snack alternative to ice cream when they’re frozen. Just grab them out of the freezer and pop them like candy.
