They’re sweet, they’re blue, and they’re a Jersey specialty! Each year, New Jersey produces hundreds of thousands of fresh blueberries, with acres of blueberry farms stretching across the southern part of the state. In fact, the Atlantic County town of Hammonton is acclaimed to be the “Blueberry Capital of the World”. With easy access to so many delicious blueberries, just what can we do with them? Check out these tasty recipes featuring fresh blueberries!

5. Blueberry-Lemon Iced Tea

While this tea mixture is rather easy to make, adding fresh blueberries to iced tea is not as common as fruits in the citrus family. Needless to say, the addition creates a mouthwatering summer treat! Although the recipe calls for frozen blueberries, using fresh berries to your tea will certainly do the trick!
