Celebrating the Red, White, and Blueberry Month

The View at Mill Run Blog, Owings Mills, MD  July is National Blueberry Month and we've got some awesome recipes for our apartment community to try.

Welcome back to The View at Mill Run Blog!  Along with the rest of the country, Owings Mills, MD celebrates Independence Day this month with the red white and blue — and we think it’s also the perfect time to celebrate red, white, and blueberries too! This month we’re bringing our residents of our apartment community six unique blueberry recipes (and the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council’s website has, even more, blueberry-based recipes). Everyone’s had blueberry cheesecakes, pancakes, and muffins, but we bet you’ve never tried a blueberry-topped pizza or sushi roll. Keep reading if you want to know how to make these unique treats.


Blueberry, Peach, and Celery Salad

We’ll start with the least “weird” recipe we’ve got and move on from there. When combined, peaches and blueberries create the perfect base for a nice, normal fruit salad, but adding celery, parsley, salt, olive oil, and black pepper takes this meal to the next level. This daring salad adds a dash of savory flavor to a traditionally sweet dish.


Lavender Blueberry Honey Ice Cream

Though an ice cream maker is required for this recipe, it’s worth the help and extra effort. But the prep and cook time is actually pretty quick. Drawing on the strong flavors of lavender essential oil, heavy cream, whole milk, eggs, honey, and sugar mix perfectly with fresh blueberries and vanilla. It’s a flavor that’s bound to impress your friends.


Blueberry Mango Nachos

Blueberry Mango Nachos are the dessert dish we didn’t know we needed. They’re light, flavorful, and perfect for snacking on while you’re watching your favorite sporting event on TV.


Blueberry Grilled Cheese

This recipe makes grilled cheese a little sweeter than we’re used to. The apple slices and blueberries offset the heavy flavor of the cheese for a simple summer dinner.


Savory Blueberry Pizza

We’ve had pizzas topped with pineapples, but never blueberries. Cheesy, fruity, savory, and sweet, you won’t regret having a slice.


Blueberry Fruit “Sushi”

This dessert sushi roll is the perfect ending to a formal meal with friends. It’s unique enough to be a conversation starter, and delicious enough to leave all your dinner guests feeling satisfied. Don’t worry — this recipe doesn’t actually contain any fish, so it’s seafood-allergy safe.


Even if you don’t end up making all six blueberry recipes this month, we hope that you try a couple of them! Do you have any blueberry recipes that you think we should try? Let us know in the comments!
