I spent Labor Day weekend in NH picking Wild Black Berries. They are the most beautiful deep blue berries ever!
This is an annual event for us but this year was a particularly bountiful harvest. We use them in many ways, in fruit salads with local melons, and we make jams for gifts. They make a very delicious blackberry pancake with NH maple syrup! :-)
They are also a great addition to smoothies. They freeze beautifully and last in the freezer all winter.
- One cup has 43 calories.
- They are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C.
- Their dark color makes them one of the highest antioxident levels of all foods.
- They are anti viral, anti bacterial, and anti carcinogen.
- They are rich in mineral like potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium to name only a few.

We know that eating a rainbow of colors is beneficial so add these beautiful deep blue berries to your diet today!! If you cannot pick your own, check out the local farmers markets.
