National Blueberry Month
July 09, 2013
July is National Blueberry Month, and what better way to celebrate than to pick your own. Here in Kansas City, berry picking time is starting, and the blueberries are ripe! It’s a great way to spend a Saturday with the family, and it kinda takes you back in time. Do you remember picking berries with your mother and grandmother? Did you watch them make preserves, lining up all those Mason jars on the counter and working around pots full of boiling water?
The blueberry patch feels like summer and happy memories to me, and I’m excited to get out there and pick some fresh berries. And then, enjoy them! We have plenty of recipe and cookbooks at the Library; soon, I can get started on blueberry pie, blueberry muffins, blueberry smoothies, and so much more!
Happy Blueberry Month!
