Here in North Carolina it is the wonderful blueberry season. Blueberries are a great antioxidant and are very delicious also. They can be easily frozen by placing them unwashed on baking sheets then freezing for 2 hours then place by one-cupfuls into plastic sandwich bags and freeze for future use.

Blueberries can be cooked by themselves in jams, pies, smoothies, and sauces, or cooked with meat, pork, fish, shrimp, or tossed into a fruit salad or even a salmon or tuna fish salad. They work well in breads, scones, muffins, pancakes, pies, crisps, cobblers, ice cream, and preserves. Use your creative imagination to enjoy this majestic blue fruit.
