Blueberries

By Barbara Moore

June is my favorite time of year in New Jersey because ... the blueberry crop is ready!
I can't think of a fruit that is more perfect. Blueberries are portable and no tools are needed to eat them. They are great plain or baked or added to salads, cereal or a wealth of dishes.

Here is a fabulous Blueberry cobbler ... Just a few ingredients and you can make it in a skillet!

This is a fun to make, easy recipe! You can find it here:
Skillet Blueberry Cobbler Recipe - This is a fast, simple to make dessert everyone in your family will love!

Of course you need to be dressed appropriately to make this delicious cobbler. At the minimum, the jewelry you wear should get you in the right frame of mind ... the gorgeous pair of blue sodalite sterling silver chain drop earrings shown below will get you into a blueberry mood!



New Jersey is known for producing the best blueberries and of course they taste their best when they are fresh picked. If you are lucky enough to visit New Jersey, be sure to stop at a local farm stand - or pay a fee at a farm to pick your own!

If you cant get to New Jersey, you'll find these fantastic berries at your local fruit stand or market - they're in season and available now!

Medical studies about the health benefits of blueberries are numerous. Animal studies found blueberry consumption lowered cholesterol and total blood lipid levels, possibly affecting symptoms of heart disease.


Just about everyone loves pancakes ... and fresh, tangy blueberries make them even more delicious and satisfying!

These pancakes are made from fresh ingredients - not out of a box, so you know they're going to be really good! Fresh buttermilk, flour, real sugar and butter ... and of course, they're loaded with plump, ripe blueberries!

Sooo good ... they're easy to make and take just a short time to prepare. Try this fantastic blueberry pancake recipe and you'll never go back to a mix again!



These Blueberry Wafer Sterling Silver Earrings are beautiful - these gorgeous beads are sort of pancake shaped and the colors match well with those delicious pancakes above. They're the perfect breakfast fashion accent!


The health benefits of blueberries are well known.


Supplementation of diets with wild blueberry juice may affect memory and learning in older adults, while reducing blood sugar and symptoms of depression.

Isn't it wonderful to have a food that is not only delicious but good for you?

Here are a few more blueberry inspired jewelry treats from the JETS ...
