Celebrating National Blueberry Month in Williamsville, NY

Celebrating National Blueberry Month in Williamsville, NY

July, the month we celebrate our nation’s birthday, the month the heat turns up for the summer, and, this may be new to you, National Blueberry Month. In the spirit of celebration, we are sharing a blueberry based recipe as well as more information about blueberries with our apartment community. So head out to your favorite grocery store in Williamsville, Buffalo, or a western New York farmer’s market and pick up some berries soon. Try out a blueberry recipe this month.

An amazing resource about blueberries, the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council’s website is a wonderful place to find all kinds of information about the fruit including instructions on growing them, information for the foodservice industry, information about the health benefits blueberries provide, cooking tips, and of course recipes!

Typically, when we think of blueberries, we think of blueberry muffins, pancakes, and blueberry pie. But these tasty morsels can be added to salads, main dishes, smoothies, sauces, and drinks as well as baked goods and desserts. We think you’ll like this recipe for a banana/blueberry bread that is amazing. Light, moist, and bursting with flavor, you will want to make a double batch and share with your neighbors at Windsong Place Apartments!
