Truth be told, it’s National Blueberry Month in Canada! My homeland loves to differentiate itself from its neighbor to the south. In the US, National Blueberry Month is held in July. Well, it’s colder up north and perhaps their crop doesn’t come into its own until now. And come to think of it, Andrew actually made both of this salute to Blueberries in July! But this recipe is so good, you could make them any month of the year and they’d be a celebration of the wonderful taste of Blueberries. And there’s this: You can freeze summer blueberries for three to six months, without any loss of the antioxidants Blueberries are famous for. (By the way, if you can’t find fresh blueberries to freeze, the ones you will find in the frozen food section have all the health benefits of the home-frozen variety. And there’s even better news: Research shows that the antioxidants in blueberries not only benefit the nervous system and brain health, there’s new evidence that blueberries improve memory. And the more you eat, the greater the results: 12 weeks of eating ¾ lbs. of blueberries daily improved cognitive function in two different tests. What a wonderful thought! Preserving your memory with a Blueberry Muffin. But this is not just any old blueberry muffin.
