I love blueberry anything!  Ever since blueberries became good for you, the price soared through the roof.  Actually anything that has been named good for you has skyrocketed in price.

Ann, are you a spokesperson for the blueberry growers association or something?
It is true they are a nutrition bargain power house.  Great things come in small packages.
Nancy & Fran M, you are missing out on good stuff.
I like them in muffins, pies, pancakes, fruit salads and parfaits.  Yum, yumm

suitcases and carryon. They were bubble wrapped to prevent bruising.  lol lol  I love
my apples too! You bet apples are good for you!!!  I'm going to Solvang this coming

My Neighbor and very good friend is 98 and she eats a handful of blueberries everyday and an egg along with other nutritious foods! Maybe that's why she is 98 ?

I keep trying to grow blueberries.  I have one large bush that usually produces quite a few, but this year wasn't a good year for much of anything.  I have planted 3 new ones so hopefully they'll produce enough so I can freeze some for the winter

I like blueberries but they have to be real blueberries.  Often when you see blueberries as an ingredient if you look at the ingredients the blueberries will be a formed blueberry with "other stuff" making up the blueberry.
I have a favorite salad I get from a store that is made with spinach, blueberries, raspberries, walnuts and blue cheese. I don't even put a dressing on it as the berries and cheese add enough flavor and moisture without dressing.
I also like blueberries as an ingredient in my smoothie.
All that said I am not a real fan of blueberry pie but as an ingredient in a cake they are good.
