I’m a little obsessed with blueberries. I stalk the Facebook page of my local berry farm every July to monitor the progress of those little beauties, and on opening day I load my kids in the van and we’re ready for our first summer haul. We usually come home with between 7 and 10 pounds of berries and then I have to figure out what to do with them all. Here are ten mouth-watering contenders for this year’s crop!
