Wild Blueberry Ginger Lemon Muffins

    blueberry gingered lemon muffins

    Tiny wild blueberries with a burst of flavor, spicy ginger, and refreshing lemon together – in a hearty muffin. Wild Blueberry Ginger Lemon muffins are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or for a snack.

    Do you know the difference between wild blueberries and cultivated blueberries?

    For one thing, they are tiny – about half the size. They grow naturally in the fields and barrens of Maine and Canada. They have a unique sweet-tart taste, and are only available frozen. (Unless you pick them yourself like we do. And bears. Always watch for bears because they love blueberries, too.)

    USDA studies rank Wild Blueberries highest in antioxidant capacity per serving, compared with more than 20 other fruits including cranberries, strawberries, apples and even cultivated blueberries.

    Health magazine has named Wild Blueberries high on its list of “America’s Healthiest Superfoods for Women,” singling out their variety of potential health benefits, including preventing memory loss, improving motor skills, lowering blood pressure, and fighting wrinkles.
