These small fruits have a sweetish flavour and a subtle, gentle aroma. They have a smooth, dark blue skin and white juice.
Choose firm berries with a sweet smell, without any trace of mould or mildew. With berries it’s especially important to maintain a constant low temperature during transport. Because they are picked off the branch, the hole in the top can quickly go mouldy.
Blueberries ripen after harvest but should only be picked when they have reached their final colour. At home, you can keep them for a few days at room temperature and up to 10 days at 4°C or 5°C.
Great as they are or with a splash of low-fat cream. They have more flavour at room temperature, so remove blueberries from the fridge in advance of serving. They also cook beautifully in desserts, pancakes, jam and more.
