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.

You may equate summer with barbecues and the beach, but to us, warmer weather is also a signifier of blueberry season. They’re at their peak between May and August—while we love to eat them plain and picked fresh, we also like to turn them into jams (such as Gabriel Rucker’s Blueberry-Beaujolais Jam recipe), pile them into tarts and pies, and even make them into a glaze for ribs. (Trust us on that one.) Read on for those recipes, and more blueberry recipes we love.
