National Blueberry Muffin Day
On July 11th, National Blueberry Muffin Day gives us a great reason to get up in the morning and celebrate! Americans adore their blueberry muffins so much, it's their number one favorite muffin flavor. Blueberry muffins are melt-in-your-mouth delectable whether it's for breakfast or a snack.
Consider the powerhouse the blueberry is when enjoying a delectable blueberry muffin. Thanks to Elizabeth Coleman White's findings and Dr. Frederick V. Coville's study, this once-wild berry became domesticated in the early 1900s. Wild blueberries were never successfully transplanted and raised in any farming operation for personal or commercial production before their efforts. The only way to enjoy fresh blueberries was to find them out where they grew naturally.
Today we can enjoy the abundant potassium, vitamin C, and B6 of the blueberry, as well as other health benefits of the blueberry much more readily than they did 120 years ago. We bake them into muffins and eat them by the handfuls. They are so likable that we're celebrating blueberries as a popsicle, cheesecake, and a popover day! Don't forget, July is also National Blueberry Month.
