In this fast paced, eat on the run, junk food society we live in, a handful of blueberries eaten while you are running between meetings or other appointments might just help save your life. You can carry a cup of them around with you and just pop them in your mouth like jelly beans on your dash from point A to point B. They don’t have to be sliced, diced or cooked. You can eat them raw, in fact, raw is better for you… and what is more, they won’t melt in your hand either and they aren’t even messy unless you squeeze them. What is more, you can eat them skin, seed and all, no pits, now skin to discard of, no sticky or greasy mess on your fingers.
These are just a few of their wonderful benefits aside from their nutrition factor.

BLUEBERRY HAVEN KELOWNA TIPS FOR PREPARING BLUEBERRIES:

*******************************
-Fresh berries are fragile and should be washed briefly and carefully and then gently patted dry. Wash berries just prior to use to not prematurely remove the protective bloom that resides on the skin’s surface.
-When using frozen berries in recipes that do not require cooking, thaw well and drain prior to using. For cooked recipes, use unthawed berries since this will ensure maximum flavor. Extend the cooking time a few minutes to accommodate for the frozen berries. You may notice that berries used in baked products may take on a green color. This is a natural reaction of their anthocyanidin pigments and does not make the food item unsafe to eat.
