Blueberries - Amazing - Facts - And - Recipes

Updated on September 1, 2015

Amazing Facts About Blueberries

I remember my grandparents describing to me how they loved eating blueberries when they were kids. The only blueberries available back then were wild. They would fill their "gunny sacks" as full as possible. Once they were home, they would count the berries to see who picked the most. The winner was given a blueberry pie all their own.

Some Blueberry Facts You May Not Know ~

  • Did you know that the native americans called blueberries "star berries.?" Notice the five points of a star made by the blossom itself.
  • If you go back to the eighteenth century, you'll find that blueberries were used for medicinal purposes. And in Germany they were used for coughs, as a diuretic, a treatment for gout and even for problems with diarrhea. I find that just amazing. It makes me wonder why blueberries aren't "prescribed" today for these maladies.
  • And here's another fact that you probably haven't heard. During WWII night vision was improved after eating blueberry/bilberry jam.
  • Now Honey Bees can't reach far enough down into the flower to pollinate it. But both Mason Bees and Bumble Bees can, however, pollinate blueberries. So be nice to these bees. The Bumble Bee gets a bad rap. Let's appreciate these "honey's" for their service to us.
  • Blueberries are one of the most healthful foods we can consume mostly because they're full of anti-oxidants. But as you read on, you'll discover other reasons these tasty blue morsels are important for good health.
  • And here's a fact that blew my mind. Blueberries help to improve balance. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a study was done, showing that " a diet rich in blueberry extract, reversed some loss of balance and coordination and short term memory in aging rats." (Taken from Journal of Neuroscience, Sept. Issue.)
  • You thought that only carrots were good for the eyes? Well so are blueberries. "Anthocyanins" are found in blueberries and have been credited with capacity to modulate cognitive and motor function, to enhance memory, and to have a role in preventing age-related declines in neural function. (J Biomed Biotechnol. 2004 December 1; 2004(5): 306–313.doi: 10.1155/S111072430440401X)

Pretty interesting stuff.

10 Different Ways to Eat Blueberries

Some of you may have tried some of these various ways to eat blueberries, but then again, maybe not. Let me know by leaving your comments following this hub. And if you have a recipie that isn't listed here, please include that as well.

1. Blueberry Chili - Just add a cup or two of blueberries to your standard home-made chili. The blueberries add a hint of sweetness that you will not soon forget.

2. Yogurt and blueberries - This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy blueberries. Simply sprinkle the berries as a topping or stir into the yogurt. Add a few sunflower seeds or other varieties of nuts.

3. Blueberry Pie - Only 1 small slice now.

4. Bluberry Cobbler - Oh go ahead and enjoy a bowl full along with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or cold milk.

5. Garden Salad with Bluberries - Very healthy as long as you watch the dressing. Use a variety of fresh vegetables - organic is preferred.

6. Bluberries and Chocolate - Serve fresh blueberries covered with melted chocolate. You can also harden the chocolate by refrigerating the blueberries and chocolate.

7. Make a Blueberry Smoothie - Blend blueberries, greek yougurt, skim or almond milk with a drop of vanilla and honey or stevia. Add a banana for potassium. I like to add a little wheat germ or flaxseed too. If berries are frozen the smoothie will be thicker.

8. Blueberry Muffins - Simply add fresh berries to your muffin or cake mix. Tastes great.

9. Blueberry Pancakes - Add blueberries to your pancake or waffle batter. When done, smother with butter and sprinkle powdered sugar.

10. Cereal - Fresh blueberries can be added to almost any breakfast cereal and granola. This combination is certain to give you that extra boost for the day.

Be sure to tickle your palate with blueberries at least 3-5 times a week. Your immune system will thank you and so will your brain.

Blueberry Trivia

~Early American colonists made grey paint by boiling blueberries in milk.

~North America produces nearly 90% of world blueberry production (2005).

~During the Civil War of the 1860s, blueberries were collected, packaged, and sent to Union troops for use as a food staple.

~July is National Blueberry Month because that is the peak of the harvest season.

Main,Michigan, Canada, Quebec, Nova Scotia grow our supply of blueberries.

Anyone remember this song besides me?

Storing Blueberries

Blueberries can be stored up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Do not wash until you're ready to eat them. It's a good idea to store them in either a plastic bag or plastic container to keep them from contaminating other foods.

If you choose to freeze blueberries you may want to wash them first. This way you can snack on a few knowing they're clean. Wash them gently and let them dry completely before freezing. Place in a Ziplock bag removing as much air as possible to reduce freezer burn. Label each bag with the date.

Use This Recipe As A Mask For Your Skin

In addition to the benefits of blueberries when eaten, they are also good to apply to the skin. Try this blueberry/chocolate face mask.

In a bowl mix the following:

  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (hot cocoa mix will work!)
  • 2 tablespoons of sour cream

Make sure it is mixed well and that the berries are well crushed.

  1. Pull your hair back or wear a shower cap to protect it.
  2. Gently spread mixture on face and neck, avoiding the eyes.
  3. Leave on for 10 minutes while you relax with a nice hot cup of blueberry tea.
  4. Using a soft wet washcloth, gently remove the mask using circular motions,
  5. Moisturize with your favorite moisturizer

Always protect your face with a sunscreen of at least an SPF of 30.

      I will be looking for blueberries from Maine. Thanks for this tip. I'm with you about the chocolate-blueberry mask. Yummy!


      Chocolate and blueberries is an awesome combination. I'm thrilled that blueberries are such a great health benefit because I love to eat them. Thanks. Audrey


      I apologize for this late response. I tried your recipe for the cottage cheese with blueberries, cinnamon and walnuts and it is to die for! Thanks so much for sharing this delicious breakfast treat.

      Audrey, one of my favorite breakfasts is a couple of tablespoons cottage cheese topped with blueberries, ground cinnamon, and walnuts. It's yummy, filling and gives a good start to the day. When I worked out of the home I'd often package it up and take it to the office. It's easily eaten while you work.

      carol7777 - I think you're idea is a good one. It's one way to keep healthy. I also use frozen berries in the winter. Thanks!

      Blueberries are my favorite berry. The ones from Maine are the best! I love all the ideas for using blueberries especially the face mask. However I think I would eat it up before I'd get it on my face. Blueberries and chocolate together is just too much . LOL!

      Thanks for all this useful information about blueberries.

      I find it hard to have them fresh everyday in the house, so I now eat them everyday either fresh, as dried fruit and I recently bought a jar of organic blueberry jam.

      I am no longer buying it and I thank you for teaching me about the ingredients found in it.

      As blueberries are almost always imported, finding a blueberry pie in Mexico is quite unlikely and making one very expensive.... I have never tried a blueberry pie but I reckon it must taste delicious.

      The three ways in which I occasionally do eat blueberries is in smoothies, with yogurt and, the most usual one and that is not in your list: in jams.

      Blueberries and yogurt are a favorite way to eat them in this house. I occasionally add the dried versions to bran muffins which are also good in place of raisins. Haven't had a blueberry pancake in ages! Will have to correct that soon. Thanks for this useful and interesting hub. Up votes and sharing.

      I hate to burst your bubble about "guilt free, fat free Cool Whip." There's nothing healthy or even safe about eating it. Here's the ingredient list:

      Cool Whip Fat Free: Water, Corn Syrup, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Adds a Negligible Amount of Fat) (Coconut and Palm Kernel Oils), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Less than Two Percent of Sodium Caseinate (from Milk), Natural and Artificial Flavor, Modified Food Starch, Xanthan and Guar Gums, Polysorbate 60, Polysorbate 65, Sorbitan Monostearate, Sodium Hydroxide, Beta Carotene (Color).

      This stuff is in no way good for anyone! You'd be better off eating your blueberries plain. They contain enough natural fructose to satisfy your sweet tooth, and if you partially freeze them and add to other real fruit in a smoothie, you'll get the smoothness you obviously like. Real food is so much better for us than "stuff" processed with chemicals. (No where on the Cool Whip label is is called "food.")

      Hope I didn't ruin your day.....I'm glad you like blueberries, and your other choices are healthier. I hope you can wean yourself away from the Cool Whip--any variety. Your good health will thank you!

      Hi Audrey,

      Great suggestions on ways to eat blueberries. I will pass on the cool whip though.

      I like eating blueberries with other berries such as strawberries. The other day I bought some maple syrup butter and added a little to my berries. Delicious!

      Voted up and yummy.

      Sharing and hoping this raises the score of your lowest scoring hub.

      Have a good evening. :)

      This really made me think about my own eating habits and how much of an emotional eater I really am! I tend to use sweets and foods that I crave, ice cream, candy etc. as a reward and if I start, I really overdo it! If I don't have any then I am fine! It's not the weight, I have always been on the thin side, it's how I feel and I am not in good physical shape!

      Very thought provoking hub! Thanks for sharing this Audrey!

      Your Hub made me think. I'm a pastry chef. I'm around sweet stuff all day. I normally dont 'SAMPLE" anything while I'm working or at work, normally dont cravings for sweets either, well except brownies they are my down fall, but everything else no. Before I became a pastry chef I was a BIG sweet eater now not so much. I eat more fruit and Veggies then I use to. Is it because I'm around it all day and smell it that my mind gets its fill just by the smells?

      allpurposeguru - Sure like your comments. And like you...focusing completely on what I put in my mouth is important. Really listening to my body.

      This is my first time, using the little dog photo, so not sure if it attracts more comments. The more you take the time to leave comments on other hubs, the more likely you are to attract more comments on your own hubs.

      It is very time consuming, but that's how it works. Begin with taking 30 minutes or so doing nothing but reading and commenting on hubs. See for yourself how you begin to build a following.

      Make it a great day!

      I'm on the see food diet. I keep trying to remember that mindful eating is important. Really concentrate on how good the meal or the snack tastes and, as you say, make it small. With mindless eating, I'm likely to gobble a bunch of pretzels or crackers or something else I'm really not all that fond of, simply because it's within reach. If I don't enjoy it, why eat it?

      Voted up. Interesting.

      BTW, love the dog picture. Does it help you get comments? I've got just the picture to put that comment on somehow.

      That's why I have to keep going to Weight Watcher's meetings all the time, or I'd eat myself right back to the weight I was. I'm a "lifetime" for over three years now. One thing I will tell you is that instead of ignoring your growling stomach - have a piece of fruit with a very small piece of chicken breast. Don't ignore your stomach while trying to overcome the triggers or you'll just binge later. That's what works for me. Good article so many can relate to!

      The snack did sound perfect! I sometimes make jello cubes and serve it with whipped cream for dessert! Yum!

      Hi vocalcoach - awesome hub!!! This is a perfect guilt-free snack and blueberries are so very good for you. I rate myself as an emotional and physical eater - I get very "loopy" if I haven't eaten for more than 4 hours but I do have to be careful what I grab for a snack. Like you, I enjoy grabbing something to snack on in the evenings.

      I see you are doing the 30 hubs in 30 day challenge? Excellent! You should swing by the forum and post your links in there, too.

      Keep on writing!

      I believe we eat because it is there. Once we have the first, oh 3 spoonfuls, we could stop. The taste is what we crave. But we make a huge portion and eat it. When I got serious about being healthy and at a good weight, I put away my dinner plates. Now I serve on salad plates and we are always full. Isn't that interesting?

      Anyway, I like your Hub. Did I leave enough comments? I did vote. PLEASE do not unleash that dog on me.....
