Quite possibly nature’s perfect gift, blueberries are one of the healthiest foods around, and they require no pitting or peeling.

In Season

You can find cultivated berries all year; wild and locally grown berries are available primarily during July and August.

What to Look For

The berries should be firm, uniform in size, and deep blue in color with a silvery or white sheen. Ripe berries can be easily coaxed off the stem, while unripe berries will resist when you pick them!

How to Store

Remove any twigs or leaves along with any berries that are soft or ruptured. Refrigerate in the original container up to five days or freeze them for long term storage. When you’re ready to use them, rinse berries under cold water, drain, and pat dry.
