Blueberries are packed with rich flavor, high in antioxidants, are known to improve memory function and can reduce the effects of aging. The chemicals found in blueberries may contribute to fighting diseases and prevention against certain cancers. Of course, it is widely known the blueberry pie is one of the best pies ever, second only to strawberry! It is no wonder we should have a special day, National Blueberry Pie Day, in which to celebrate and eat all the pie we want!
Americans have been enjoying blueberry pies since colonial times and there is no shortage of scrumptious recipes. Why not have your own blueberry pie celebration by making a pie, or blueberry themed dishes? As well as using traditional blueberry pie recipes, why not experiment with some new ones? Adding ricotta cheese to the filling, will add a creamy twist to the pie or adding black pepper, combined with warm spices, will give your pie a real kick! Add a little extra zing with a teaspoon of lemon zest in the pie crust dough!
