Cultivated blueberries are headed to stores and that means wild blueberries aren't too far behind. Blueberries are an important part of summer in Nova Scotia - the taste of a blueberry right off the bush or in your favourite dessert easily conjures up memories of summer vacations. Whether it's a grandmother's recipe or that blueberry pie purchased at a Farmer's Market you dream of, just about everyone has a favourite way to eat blueberries.

During last year's blueberry season, we asked our Facebook community for their favourite ways to eat blueberries and we definitely got a few ideas for this upcoming blueberry season. We even got a few recipes to try.
