With late summer comes one of our favorite summer fruits—wild blueberries! Small and juicy, blueberries are delicious plain or sprinkled onto cereal or oatmeal, but we also love them made into warm muffins, tempting pie, or as a sweet addition to a stack of buttermilk pancakes. Whether you pick your own or stock up at the market, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to use up this year’s fresh blueberries. That is, if you don’t eat them all first! Read on for a list of our favorite blueberry recipes. blueberries close up
