Blueberries are native to North America and are only about 100 years old, from a commercial perspective certainly, being first sold around 1916.
Personally I see Blueberries as a delicacy. Very delicate in structure while packing a powerful punch of antioxidants. When it comes to neutralising free radicals in the body, while helping to protect our eyes, heart, brain and also rejuvenation of our skin, blueberries are it.
If you are into baking, a Blueberry Pie topped with crystallised ginger would surely be the ultimate pie. Add to fruit salads, drop into a smoothy for breakfast, lunch, or a snack at any time.
I have to say blueberries rarely make it to the checkout for me, unless they are a frozen packet. There is no better treat, than choosing Blueberries first and letting their delicate flavour enhance the rest of your shopping time. The checkout staff just smile, swipe and bin my empty Blueberry container.
