Who doesn't love Blueberries? The tiny berries are incredibly juicy, sweet and packed full of antioxidants. Throughout the North American North East no summer is complete without a stop at a pick-your-own blueberry farm. This is especially true during July, National Blueberry Month. Poet Robert Frost certainly loved picking them. In his poem “Blueberries” he wrote:

Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,
Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum.
In the cavernous pail of the first one to come!
And all ripe together, not some of them green
And some of them ripe! You ought to have seen!

In recent years, blueberries have come to be regarded as a “superfruit” owing to its favorable combination of nutrient richness, antioxidant strength and versatility as an ingredient in other food products. Raise a freshly brewed cup to an amazing berry!
