Happy National Blueberry Month!

Did you know Maine’s state berry is the wild blueberry? We use blueberries all of the time here at the Inn. And we’re headed into prime blueberry season, which means we’re loading up!

We buy hundreds of pounds of blueberries each year. We put them in pancakes, waffles, crepes, casseroles, parfaits, and more!

Not only are blueberries delicious, they’re also extremely good for you. They help lower you risk of certain cancers, lower you cholesterol, and even slow aging! (Hello fountain of youth!!)

Today, we wanted to share a great article we read about the health benefits of eating blueberries and some of the best ways to enjoy them. (We’re pretty sure our parfaits would make the list!)

Give it a read and let us know your favorite ways to eat blueberries!

How to Enjoy the World’s Best Fruit

Your Innkeepers,
