Blueberry and July 4th Recipe Ideas


Blueberry season is here. We have Blueberry Wine, our fresh-picked blueberries are in our market and starting next week you’ll be able to Pick Your Own Blueberries. To celebrate the beginning of this delicious season we made a few of our favorite Blueberry Recipes from Grandma Trax's recipe book. From a simple blueberry crisp, using our blueberry mix, to a coffee cake perfect for a weekend brunch. And we have a new recipe for this July 4th weekend that pairs perfectly with this month's wine: Arrowhead's Ambrosia.

We picked two tasty traditional blueberry favorites for the first blog of the month. Both are blueberry treats go great with either a cool blueberry iced tea or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. An essential for any treat to help withstand the July heat. They also help add some patriotic blues to your July 4th picnic table.
