It’s time to bust out the blueberries—California-grown Serres Ranch blueberries are back! “Big John” Serres and his family have been growing their legendary blueberries in Mendocino County since 2001. Thanks to ideal growing conditions, these beautiful berries are super sweet, extra plump and as fresh as it gets—they’re hand-sorted, boxed and headed out to our stores the very next day. Their season only lasts 3-4 weeks, so stock up while you can!
Need another reason to indulge in these beautiful berries? According to Dr. Liz, blueberries are rich in anthocyanins and noted for their high antioxidant levels, hence their reputation for warding off many age-related conditions related to oxidative damage such as heart disease. Color us impressed!
Along with enjoying by the handful, Serres Ranch blueberries also make great additions to baking, cocktails and other recipes like these:
Lavender Blueberry Ice Cream: This rich and tangy ice cream has just enough lavender to add a pleasant floral note without overpowering the palate.
Blueberry Buckle Cake: Buckle up and get ready to enjoy this classic coffee cake featuring fresh (or frozen) blueberries and a sweet streusel on top.
