Self Learns Something New Every Day!

Self has a two-week-old issue of The New York Times on her coffee table. On p. D6 is an article on The Season’s Best Fruit, by Pete Wells.

#3 is Blueberries

  • Blueberries are the only big-deal summer fruit that isn’t native to North America.They earn their high ranking in part by appearing so often in the wild, spread across valley meadows and mountaintop clearings. The ground-hugging, scrubby bushes have the darkest, smallest, most concentrated fruit, while the high-bush varieties will fill your hat or basket faster. A small haul can be enough for pancakes, muffins or a bowl of cereal; more means a fool or a pie. For either one, try making half into a compote and, after it cools, stirring in the other half. Big portions of blueberries alone can be a luxury.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
