Its Blueberry Time!



I absolutely love freshly picked blueberries. They bring back great memories for me. My parents have blueberry bushes in their garden, so when I was younger we would be handed pails and sent out to pick for what seemed like hours! Then we had the luxury of stuffing our blue-stained faces with blueberries for weeks on end!

In BC blueberries are now in season! There are lots of farms around Vancouver, in the Fraser Valley where you can go blueberry picking too! This makes a great day out, so if you are looking for something to do this weekend, check out one of these farms! http://www.bcf

Alternatively, if you do not have time to pick yourself, berry stands are popping up in parking lots all over North Vancouver. There is one on Marine Drive in the Tim Hortons parking lot. Also there are daily stands on the Low Road. Or - hit your Farmers Market this weekend - blueberries,
raspberries and blackberries are perfectly ripe and waiting for you!!!

What are you going to do with all of these blueberries?

I am a bit of a purist, and enjoy them as they are...but if you want to get more creative, check out some of these sites for great recipes!
They make great baby food as well!
