13 BLUEBERRY RECIPES FOR BETTER DESSERTS AND COCKTAILS

Blueberry Crisp

Blueberries add their summery sweetness to everything from tarts to pancakes to cocktails in these recipes. You can munch on them in sweet desserts like pavlova, tarts, and cobbler, like this version with sticky biscuit dough. Make ’em into a blueberry jam, butter, or sauce to slather all over your breakfast toasts or barbecued chicken (a combination we highlyrecommend). Still craving blueberries? You can even sip them in a blueberry milkshake or a summery cocktail. Sweet or savory, there are so many great ways to love blueberries.

Blueberry Crisp

With a greater focus on filling than crust, this is the best way to make the most of an excellent blueberry haul.

Blueberry Barbecue Chicken

Similar to a shrub—a fruit syrup punctuated by vinegar—this blueberry sauce makes a bracing drink when mixed with club soda or booze. It’s also the first step in a fruity vinaigrette and is a perfect glaze on oven-baked chicken. Keep in mind this is not a marinade. Brush it on toward the end of cooking and let the chicken soak up more of the sauce before serving. The final soak is key.

Blueberry Slump

A sticky biscuit dough is dropped onto blueberries in this classic New England dessert, which is called a “slump,” “grunt,” or “cobbler,” depending on who you’re asking.

Blueberry Sauce

Pastry chef Emily Luchetti makes this simple sauce for topping pancakes, waffles, or a scoop of ice cream.

Sour Milk Griddle Cakes

Rustic sour-milk pancakes make for a delicious breakfast, especially when topped stewed blueberries and maple syrup.

Blueberry Chipotle Ketchup

Sweet and smoky blueberry chipotle ketchup makes a perfect addition to all manner of grilled foods; it’s great in place of barbecue sauce on chicken legs and meaty portobello mushrooms.

Black and Blue Berry Pie

Inspired by his neighbor Olivia Pattison’s recipe, chef Chris Fischer uses tapioca in the filling of this pie because it thickens the juicy berry mixture without imparting its own flavor or becoming gummy. Minute tapioca pearls are easy to find in grocery stores, but if you like, substitute an equal amount of cornstarch.

Blueberry Compote

Poured over ice cream or stacked between weekend flapjacks, this vibrant berry compote captures the best of the season’s fruit.

Blueberry, Nectarine and Shiso Salad

Bright shiso leaves and a touch of earthy sesame oil enhance this stone fruit and berry salad.

Homemade Granola

Lightly sweet, perfectly crunchy, and with a mild vanilla flavor, this snackable granola is perfect served over yogurt or as an on-the-go snack.

Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Slightly sweet and dramatic, this is best made with the ripest in-season blueberries. All it needs is a dollop of whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg.

Blueberry Doughnuts

Fresh blueberries bolstered by jam make these donuts especially flavorful.

Spiced Cabbage with Blueberries (Kryddað Rauðkál með Bláberjum)

Cookbook author Nanna Rögnvaldardóttir braises ruby red cabbage with warm spices, fruit, and jam for this festive, sweet-tart side dish that rounds out an Icelandic Christmas menu.

Blueberry Jam and Prosecco Cocktail

A combination of jam, vodka, and prosecco could be cloyingly sweet, but this refreshing cocktail has enough lemon juice to balance sweet and tart perfectly.
