Blueberries

Blueberries are a perfect summer fruit, in season from May through August. Though we think they taste best fresh, frozen blueberries are readily available and are a great alternative if you’re in a pinch. We love to add blueberries to cocktails, salads, barbecue sauce and (of course) desserts. Blueberries are also a perfect breakfast berry, and make a tasty addition to pancakes, waffles and cereal. One of our favorite brunch recipes is this delicious blueberry Dutch baby, a family-size pancake that’s baked in the oven. Adding pomegranate juice to the batter brings out the flavor of the blueberries and adds a subtle sweetness. Once the pancake is finished cooking and topped with confectioners’ sugar, it’s almost dessert-worthy. Whether you’re a blueberry pie purist or want to mix up a margarita, F&W’s guide to blueberries has the perfect recipe.

5 Beautiful Dishes Made with Kitchen Scraps
Food waste is an epidemic. By some estimates, as much as one fifth of the world’s food is being wasted due to a combination of unnecessary disposal and over-consumption. Of course, much of this has to do with inefficiencies in food production and distribution, and larger structural problems in our food systems—but are there any steps we, as home cooks, can take in our own kitchens? Enter Scraps, Wilt & Weeds: Turning Wasted Food into Plenty, out now from Grand Central Publishing. Mads Refslund, half of the team behind legendary restaurant NOMA, and Tama Matsuoka Wong, author of Foraged Flavor, aim to give home cooks practical tips to get the most out of their groceries. Readers get a look at what Refslund calls the practice of “trash cooking” with simple, delicious recipes focused on commonly neglected ingredients: wilted greens, apple cores, coffee grounds and more. Here’s a sneak peek at the book: 5 recipes that call for creative recycling of kitchen scraps. —Hannah Walhout
