It’s blueberry season, y’all! Which means a list of Paleo blueberry recipes is in order.
I’ve decided blueberries are my #1 favorite pick-your-own berry. Picking strawberries all spring was back-breaking, muddy work. Picking blackberries and raspberries? Also back-breaking and scratchy.
But blueberries, ahh, this is the way to go, folks. You can literally stroll through the bushes, plucking ripe berries at eye level. No bending necessary.
The beautiful farm where we picked is on a hill with a delightful breeze, plus they don’t spray their berries. In fact, we found another non-spraying blueberry farm super-close to our house.
I’ve been told it’s “impossible” to grow strawberries in Virginia without spraying fungicides, due to our humid climate. I’m not ready to accept that, though, and will keep looking or may even resort to planting our own strawberries.
For now, though, I think we’ll make blueberries our bumper PYO crop: easy to pick, toxin-free, less expensive, and no hulling required!
Plus Dr. Axe says blueberries are one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world, as well as one of the highest antioxidant foods. What’s not to love?
I’ve already conquered one batch of Honey Sweetened Blueberry Jam, one pie, two batches of dehydrated berries, and several rounds of Paleo Blueberry Blender Waffles. Blueberry Salsa is next on my list.
