10 Reasons We Love Blueberries

Star-News (Wilmington, NC)


June 09--10. Ink

Blueberry ink doesn't last forever. But if you want to do something creative with a child, it's a fun way to spend some time.

9. Blueberry beer

Manly men feel they must snub their noses at fruity beers. But Wild Blue, at 8 percent alcohol, has some potency.

8. They're everywhere

Blueberries thrive in North America, all the way from Florida to Canada.

7. Frozen blueberries

Want a wholesome, satisfying sweet snack? Freeze some blueberries and eat them by the handful.

6. Antioxidants

If you read health magazines, you know that blueberries are classified as a super-food.

5. Pancakes

If you're out of syrup, add some blueberries to

the batter. No syrup needed.

4. Rats

In studies, aging rats on a blueberry extract diet showed improved balance, coordination and short-term memory.

3. Festivals

Burgaw isn't the only town that reveres the blueberry. There are festivals in Poplarville, Miss.; Alma, Ga.; Nacogdoches, Texas, and Austerlitz, N.Y., to name a few.

2. Nostalgia

My family never picked blueberries, but a pint of fresh blueberries still reminds me of climbing through a briar patch with a bucket to harvest some wild raspberries or blackberries with my dad.

And the No. 1 reason we love blueberries...

Cobbler: It's the finest of the cobblers, and I've yet to taste a cobbler I didn't love.
