Blueberries are Back!

I might have a blueberry addiction.

This past week marked the first appearance of reasonably-priced blueberries in my local supermarket.  They were actually on special – 2 pints for $5.  They had a pretty good flavor, certainly better than the tiny berries from South America that you can get over the winter for an exorbitant sum.

These berries were a good size and had a nice overall flavor.  None were too tart.  They are coming from Florida and Georgia now, which means it won’t be too long until they are local to the Mid-Atlantic region.  I can’t wait!

I am ready to bake pies, muffins, scones, cobbler, and ooohh how I love blueberry crumb cake!

Here’s a great list of blueberry festivals up and down the East Coast, timed to correspond with the local blueberry season.  A few festivals have already occurred.

Time for some berry eating!
