Miss Blueberry


This is Miss Imablueberry. She was wondering around the Salem Saturday Market passing out information and recipes and promoting--yes blueberries--a favorite crop around here from July through September.

Here's my favorite from her pamphlet

~~ Blueberry-Watermelon Frosty ~~

6 ounces frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate, unthawed
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups watermelon, seeds remove
Blend it up until smooth
Add 1 cup ice cubes and blend until slushy.

According to the brochure from the Oregon Blueberry Commission, (and my cardiologist 'heartily' agrees) blueberries are packed with antioxidant compounds which combat 'free radicals' and have benefits including improved vision, clearing arteries, strengthening blood vessels, stopping uninary tract infections. I hope you have a good supply of fresh blueberries where you live.

The supply is good, but expensive! I just paid $4 (equivalent) for 4oz. I suspect you pay less.
