The end of summer is a sweet time thanks to all the different varieties of berries that are in season. My personal favorite berry, the blueberry, is readily available fresh by the time August rolls around. When compared with other late summer berries, blueberries are the most versatile in the kitchen. On weekday mornings, I enjoy throwing fresh blueberries into some yogurt and granola. The tartness works particularly in desserts.
One of the best recipes for blueberries is blueberry pancakes. The berry adds a fresh zesty flavor to fluffy pancakes. As a kid, I loved watching the white plates turn purple, stained by the blueberries, when eating blueberry pancakes. My favorite blueberry pancakes recipes calls for soy flour and soy milk, but using all regular flour and regular milk works great too. You can use frozen blueberries, but when ripe nothing beats the flavor of fresh blueberries.
