Blueberry Buttermilk Tart

Why light a field of blueberry bushes on fire? What I was told, growing up, is that burning the blueberry bushes after they’ve given up their crop at the end of the season makes them healthier and set for new growth in the spring. Eating blueberries is one of my memories from lazy summers in […]

As a crop, they can tolerate extreme temperatures and survive with minimal water and […]
