about

Small, round, smooth-skinned and fleshy with tiny seeds, blueberries grow on shrubs on peaty moors and uplands, predominantly in North America. They have a balanced, tart and sweet flavour, although the cultivated type (which is what's mainly available in the UK) has a less intense flavour than the wild variety. They are in season from June to the end of September.To eat raw or cooked, just rinse and drain. Eat raw with cream; add to the mix for muffins, breads and pancakes or bake in a pie or tart. Cook in a little water with sugar and some lemon zest to make a topping for baked cheesecake.
