Are you looking for a blueberry recipe?
At Abers Acres, we have three ways you can buy organic blueberries from us.
- You-Pick during the u-pick season, where you pick your own fresh blueberries directly from our fields.
- Already picked blueberries from our farm stand or one of the farmers’ markets we attend.
These blueberries are picked fresh daily.
- Frozen blueberries from the farm stand and sometimes from the sales room once the stand closes in the fall.
These blueberries get frozen when there is an abundance of blueberries at the peak of the blueberry season.
Regardless if you use fresh or frozen organic blueberries, the following recipe is a must try.
