Blueberry Peak Harvest Festival | September 1 – 30, 2019

“It happens every time, they all become blueberries.”
–Willy Wonka

While the definition of a superfood is disputed, the qualifications for a blueberry to be considered as one
are not. With the highest antioxidant value of any fruit and 84% water, blueberries are one of the healthiest
fruits available. They weren’t commercially grown or widely eaten until 1916, when the daughter of a New
Jersey cranberry farmer thought it would be a great addition to their crops. She partnered with a USDA
botanist and together they were able to cultivate the berries. Today, North America grows over 700 million
pounds of blueberries, with most coming from Washington. Highbush blueberries are the variety most
commonly found at grocery stores and farmer’s markets, while lowbush blueberries which are smaller
and sweeter, are used for jams, juices, and in frozen blueberry products. All blueberries are sweet in taste
when mature, with variable acidity. Please join Chef Camiel as he harnesses the ever sweet blueberry into
specially crafted late summer fare.
