A Berry Unusual Summer
The 2020 summer season is in full swing – but this summer is unlike any other. Social meetups, family reunions, picnics in the park, and festivals have been disrupted, cancelled, or pushed online. But, there is still plenty to enjoy.
One way to take advantage of summer is to enjoy all of the fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. One fruit is synonymous with summer, the blueberry.
Whether you pick up a pint from your local grocery store, stop at a local roadside farm stand, or frequent a neighborhood farmers' market, blueberries can complement every course of the menu by putting a little taste of summer on your plate. From pies and preserves, to grilling sauces, salads, and refreshing beverages, the blueberry offers something for every age and palette. Let’s look more closely at the blueberry and its place in our national culture.
