It will soon be blueberry season here in southern New Jersey. Here are some of my favorite recipes. If you are looking to use up the remainders of the 2015 berries in your freezer or looking forward to the fresh ones soon coming to market, I think you will find something that pleases you here. My all-time favorite (and one of my oldest recipes) is still Blueberry Boy Bait. So easy and so good!
New Jersey is currently the fifth highest blueberry producing state in the U.S. Despite the state’s small size relative to other leaders, New Jersey growers have registered yields of 56.7 million pounds of blueberries this year alone. Amazingly, most of this harvest comes from about 8,800 acres only, with over 80% of New Jersey’s blueberries originating from Atlantic County. Loads of blueberries are usually packaged and transported to markets throughout the US and Canada at the Atlantic Blueberry Company at Hammonton. What makes the blueberries from New Jersey so perfect are the favorable temperatures and soil conditions of the area. source (published January 5, 2016)
