Storing and Preparing Blueberries
Unwashed blueberries will keep for up to a month in a dry, sealed container. Wash the blueberries when ready to serve. To freeze blueberries, wash your blueberries and drain well, then pack into containers leaving 1/2 inch space at the top or pack in plastic bags. The key is to drain well, and then you can easily scoop out the blueberries as needed.
Did you know that one-half cup of blueberries delivers as much antioxidant power as five servings of other fruits and vegetables? The high levels of anthocyanin in blueberries, a natural antioxidant, make blueberries powerful allies in the fight against ageing, heart disease and cancer. Anthocyanin is the same substance that gives the fruit its rich blue colouring. Blueberries also contain large amounts of chlorogenic acid, which is thought to be one of the “cancer fighters” found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Blueberries also have potent anti-inflammatories such as the arthritis-relieving pigment cyanidin.
Family Fun Play Park
After picking blueberries, we invite you to visit Hugli’s Family Fun Play Park (admission required).
During the fall, we add more seasonal activities such as the 6-acre corn maze, wagon rides to the pumpkin patch, pig races, pirate pumpkin cannon shows & more.
