There’s always a package of wild blueberries in my freezer. I like the traditional, larger blueberries too, but the little wild berries have a more concentrated flavor that works well for sauces and smoothies. They also have higher antioxidant levels than cultivated blueberries. Native to Maine and eastern Canada, these little gems are often fresher than those you find in the produce section because they’re frozen shortly after being harvested.
In conjunction with the Wild Blueberry Association of North America, the Recipe Redux has asked members to create healthy recipes highlighting the unique flavor of wild blueberries. One of my favorite flavor combinations is lemon and blueberry, so I brought these flavors together to make this Wild Blueberry Lemon Custard. My husband’s parents make custard all the time, and they talked me through their technique during our Christmas visit to Vermont. This is an absolutely delicious dessert. It’s healthy too, featuring eggs, milk, and wild blueberries as the main ingredients. Maple syrup is my sweetener of choice, as it’s less processed than white sugar and it contains beneficial minerals.
