Maine wild blueberries are tiny, usually smaller than peas. They are sweet, never tart, and have a gentle mellowness other berries lack. Driving through Maine at this time of year – high summer – you will find wild blueberries for sale outside everywhere. At roadside tables, farmstands, in neighbors’ front yards. You can also pick your own, if you are so intrepid. They are fleeting, a delicate delicacy. Get them while you can. They are perfect for snacking and I love baking with low bush blueberries, too. Here are some of our favorite recipes, from some of our favorite food bloggers.
