Did you know that commercial blueberry acreage continues to increase, with about half the world’s supply coming from the United States? Blueberries are grown commercially in 38 states, but 98% of the supply comes from just 10 states: California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, and Washington. Maine provides the bulk of the nation’s wild blueberry crop.


From drinks and desserts to breads, salads, and even main dishes, the options presented here will become instant family favorites, relished time and again. The book’s full-color photography adds to the enjoyment of cooking. Plus, gardening tips and the fruit’s fascinating history make Blueberries even more useful. 

People love blueberries because the flavor connects them to loved ones and special memories. It reminds them of family picnics, summers at the lake, and Grandma’s homemade pie.
