The 2013 Blueberry Recipe Collection is now available!
The popularity of this blueberry recipe collection proves how much North Carolinians love blueberries. We culled through the submissions and have posted the selected recipes below – just in time for blueberry season.
Editor’s note: Our State reader Ben Albright sent us a blueberry recipe booklet produced by Ralph and Maxine Gwaltney, the late-owners of a blueberry farm in Banner Elk. Many people commented on this page they wanted those recipes. You’ll find several of their recipes in the introduction to our collection.

About the North Carolina Blueberry Council
For 77 years, North Carolina blueberries have been prized as the very best available. Our blueberries are sweet in taste, rich in nutrients and antioxidants. They are a super fruit with splendid flavor! Whether you enjoy your blueberries fresh from the market or frozen for later use, North Carolina blueberries provide a sweet southern taste year-round. Nothing could be finer than North Carolina blueberries.
Compact, tasty, and packed with health supporting nutrients, blueberries rank as one of nature’s super foods. Blueberries have two cousins, the bog-loving cranberry and the European bilberry. Bilberries look similar to the blueberry, but are smaller, darker colored, and have reddish-purple pulp versus the light green of the native North America blueberry.
There is no differentiation between blueberry types in the market. Some would suggest highbush blueberries are better for fresh fruit whereas rabbiteyes are preferred for freezing and other processing. Popular highbush blueberries varieties include: Duke, New Hanover, Farthing, Abundance, Reb, O’Neal, Star, Legacy and Emerald. Columbus, Brightwell, Tifblue, and Powder Blue are commonly cultivated rabbiteye varieties.
