Holiday Entertaining with Wild Blueberries
With Wild Blueberries available straight from the freezer year round – frozen fresh and always delicious – there is no reason to limit their use to summertime pies. This holiday season think about swapping out cranberries in favor of Wild Blueberries.
Frozen Wild Blueberries are a smaller more compact blueberry than the larger regular blueberries found in the produce section. They maintain their shape and texture much better in baking and cooking and deliver an intense blueberry flavor that their larger cultivated cousins simply can’t match. Their smaller size also means you always get more wonderful whole berries in every delicious bite. So for the “blueberriest” creations this holiday, make sure you give Wild Blueberries a try…. your taste buds, your family members and your guests will love you for it.
