Celebrate National Blueberry Month

In celebration of National Blueberry Month, we showcase our Blueberry Blossom Honey from the Eastern Shore of New Jersey, where honeybees pollinate highbush blueberry crops. This light to medium amber honey has a sweet, buttery taste with a hint of berry. There are no additives to this honey to make it taste like blueberry. The flavor comes straight from the nectar of blueberry blossoms. It is tasty honey that adds flavor and dimension to a variety of dishes.

Blueberries are a crop that benefits from the bee’s help with pollination. Increased berry production is a result of the bees buzzing around the bushes. Bees gather the nectar from the blueberry bush that helps create this distinct honey. The fruit output increases up to 1000 pounds per acre when the mighty honeybee is on-hand to help. If you are interested in planting blueberry bushes, there are many resources to browse to learn more about optimum growing conditions.

Celebrate National Blueberry Month with one of these simple, delicious ways to eat blueberries and honey.

We love everything blueberry, and these honey blueberry muffins are hardly an exception. Try your hand and making these muffins fresh and surprise your family.

Here’s an idea serve these muffins with our black and blue jam. This jam is very low in sugar, and one of the things that I love about it is mid-January when I crack open a jar of this jam, filling my spirit with summer. I serve it on crusty toast and ice cream, among many other things!

Grill fresh peaches, add blue or gorgonzola cheese to the center, top with a little balsamic vinegar and blueberry honey, and serve with toasted walnuts for a luscious summer dessert.

An oh-so-delicious pre-dinner/appetizer favorite is to spread goat cheese crostini and add a drizzle of blueberry honey. To up the yum factor, nestle some fresh blueberries into the goat cheese.
