Blueberries—glistening like gems—are one of our most celebrated fruits. Rightly so, as these colorful berries hold a special place in American history, dating back hundreds of years in Native American culture, where they were called “star berries” for the five-point “star” at the blossom end of the berry. The Native Americans treasured blueberries, collecting them and using them as a favorite ingredient in many traditional dishes. I grew up with blueberries in the Pacific Northwest, where they grow abundantly and I picked them in the wild. And they are also grown in Europe; I’ve enjoyed picking wild blueberries in Sweden on many an occasion. Blueberries are a delicious, nutritious addition to your kitchen, so learn how to harness their benefits with my guide on how to use blueberries in the kitchen.
