Local Blueberries: Go Get 'Em


Farmers markets are bursting at the seams with freshly-picked spring produce. One of the most exciting fruits you’ll find right now are sweet, beautiful blueberries. I bought a bunch recently to freeze – my family loves pulling a handful out of the freezer for a healthy snack; but we’ve also enjoyed them in fruit salads, muffins, pies and ice cream. A terrific source of vitamin C and dietary fiber, blueberries also have antioxidant properties – and most importantly, they taste great.

To find locally-grown, ripe blueberries (and lots of other wonderful fruit), check out the California Certified Farmers Market website at www.cafarmersmarkets.com.
