Fresh Florida blueberries are lightly sweetened and spiced, covered with a flaky nutmeg- and-sugar dusted topping, and then cooked to perfection in this mouth-watering Blueberry Cobbler recipe.
As soon as the weather gets warmer, I start to crave fresh fruit. Luckily, living in Alabama, I have easy access to all kinds of fresh fruit and seafood directly from Florida! So far this season I’ve made these amazing Mini Blueberry Pies, as well as my family’s favorite Caramel and Nut Dipped Strawberry treats! And each recipe was made with Fresh From Florida fruit.
As I’ve mentioned before, Fresh From Florida and the Florida Department of Agriculture are working together to promote locally grown Florida produce and fresh seafood. Fresh From Florida fruits, vegetables and seafood are harvested at the peak of the season, which means better tasting and more nutritious foods for your family to enjoy. From local farms to our kitchen tables, Fresh From Florida and the Florida Department of Agriculture guarantees fresh and delicious food that makes every recipe a family approved win!
Speaking of fresh fruit I recently made a fantastic Blueberry Cobbler! Loosely based on 2 different cobbler recipes – one I found years ago in a magazine, and the other a friend shared – it’s truly the best cobbler I’ve ever had! It’s also the perfect dessert for a family cook-out or picnic. And the Fresh From Florida blueberries make this blueberry cobbler too delicious to pass up.
